Do you have old electronics hanging around the house? LLCC is organizing a recycling event on Sunday afternoon, May 2nd, 2:00 – 4:30 pm, to help you protect the planet and get rid of them painlessly at no, or the least possible, cost. Proceeds will benefit Tommy Nobis Center (TNC) in Marietta, which employs people with disabilities to dismantle the equipment for recycling so that nothing goes to waste. You will be given a blank receipt to complete for tax purposes.
Free pastries and soft drinks will be served at the event, and there will be a clown and balloons for the kids. Come and meet your neighbors – and your tri-neighbors!
Drop off location:
We will be collecting these items in a U-Haul truck in the parking lot of Peachtree Baptist Church at the intersection of Briarcliff Road and LaVista Road (parking lot entrance on LaVista Road). You will be given a blank receipt to complete for tax purposes).
There’s no charge to drop off:
Cell phones, telephones, computers, CPUs, stereos, toasters, laptops, copiers, printers, VCRs, alarm clocks, remote controls, MP3 players, disk drives, can openers, camcorders, floppy drives, speakers, cameras, modems, mice(!), CD players, fax machines, game systems – we could go on!
$5 EPA charge to drop off:
TVs with a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT), CRT computer Monitors. Both these have a $5 charge per CRT. We ask that you bring a check made out to TNC for us to pass on.
This LLCC endeavor is part of the Spring Clean-up Initiative led by Sarah Hailey. Ricky Ram and I are also on the committee. Volunteers are needed to check in equipment, load the truck for TNC and serve cookies and drinks. All these jobs are great ways to meet your neighbors, too. We will not say no to passing trade!
