One-day event to include electronics recycling, document shredding and collection of non-hazardous items

The city of Norcross is kicking off the spring season with a Neighborhood Clean-up & Recycling Day on Saturday, April 2.

Residents can help keep Norcross ‘clean and beautiful’ by bringing in documents to be securely shredded, hauling in non-hazardous bulk items and recycling electronics. During the one-day event, the city of Norcross will also be accepting canned or non-perishable goods donations for the 2016 “Can” Do for Hunger Campaign.

“We are pleased to offer this event for the community and we appreciate everyone’s efforts in keeping Norcross clean and beautiful“ said Norcross City Manager Rudolph Smith. “This event not only helps to create a sense of pride in our city, it also helps to keep Norcross ‘a place to imagine.’"

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).

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.

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.
