ACWORTH, Ga. -- The City of Acworth Parks and Recreation Department is holding their Computer, Electronics and Metal Recycling Day at the Acworth Sports Complex on Saturday.
From 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., the City of Acworth invites community members to recycle household items like grills, lawn mowers, metal patio furniture, car parts, bikes, gutters, metal siding, metal fencing and exercising equipment.
There is no cost to recycle metal and electronics, but computer monitors cost $15 and televisions cost $20 to recycle. As part of the Think Green! program, the City of Acworth hopes to reduce landfill collections.
A new addition to this year's recycling day is that Federal Recyclers will accept paint. Pints and gallons have a fee of $2, five-gallon cans cost $7. They ask that paint cans are labeled because some paints are hazardous waste, and need to be separated for controlled recycling.
