Forsyth Has Successful Recycling Event

More than 29,000 pounds of electronics were recycled.

This year's electronics recycling event is being called a "success" and for good reason. More than 29,000 pounds of electronics were recycled during the Keep Forsyth County Beautiful event held recently.

“We appreciate the residents coming out and participating in the electronics recycling event,” said Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright in a press release. “We also want to thank all of the volunteers who helped at the event.”

A total of 240 cars arrived at the Cumming Fairgrounds off Castleberry Road on Oct. 27 to drop off 29,128 pounds of electronics. The items that were recycled included, 195 monitors, 169 personal computers and 99 televisions.

If you missed out on the event, electronics recycling is available to residents year-round at the Tolbert Street Recycling Center, located at 351 Tolbert Street. The center is open Monday through Saturday only from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The following items are accepted at this location:

  • Computers
  • Keyboards
  • Laptops
  • VCRs
  • Cameras
  • Phones

A fee of $2 is charged for one item dropped off at the center; $4 for two items; and $5 for unlimited items. There is an additional charge of $12 per television, but keep in mind no wooden consoles or projection televisions can be accepted.
