One-day event to include electronics recycling, document shredding and collection of non-hazardous items
 
Norcross  – With the falling of leaves as autumn nears, in addition to raking, it is also a good time to clean and purge items in our homes and neighborhoods. To help keep Norcross 'clean and beautiful,' the City of Norcross is pleased to host a Neighborhood Clean-up & Recycling Day on Saturday, September 23th where residents can bring in documents to be securely shredded, haul in non-hazardous bulk items and recycle electronics.

During the one-day event, the City of Norcross will also be accepting canned or non-perishable goods donations for the 2017 "Can" Do for Hunger Campaign.

Clean-Up Event: During the Clean-up Day, which also includes a shredding and recycling event, residents can bring in items that are not hazardous material to the Public Works Facility, 345 Lively Street (just off Buford Hwy) from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. The Clean-up event is free and open to City of Norcross residents only (proof of residency required).

Shredding Event: The shredding event, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 9 a.m. - noon or until the truck is full at Norcross City Hall, 65 Lawrenceville Street. American Security Shredding will be on-site with their shred truck. Each person is limited to five medium boxes or equivalent.

Electronics Recycling Event: City of Norcross residents and the general public are invited to participate in the electronics recycling event where they can get rid of old cell phones, computers and keyboards without guilt. Atlanta Recycling Solutions and city volunteers will be available to help unload donated items. For a complete list of recyclables visit the city website. This event is free except for televisions, which require a $20 fee. CRT Monitors are $10. Please note that console or projection televisions cannot be accepted. The recycling event will be held at the Norcross Community Center, 10 College Street, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

The City of Norcross is also asking all participants to bring canned or non-perishable goods to support the 2017 "Can" Do for Hunger Campaign. Donations will be accepted at each cleanup/recycling location. The donated items will be given to local food banks and to community members in need.
