With so many electronic gadgets in our daily lives, it is important to remember to recycle. If a product is old or outdated, it should not simply be thrown into a landfill, but disposed of properly.
Another good idea is to find a container that is not only small enough to be used in apartment recycling, but that can also act as a stackable recycle bin. This way, you can create your own recycling station right in your apartment, condo or dormitory. When recycling is convenient, recycling is successful.
Electronics or e-waste is becoming a huge environmental problem as it contains mercury and other toxic chemicals that can get into our soil harming our health. If you need to get rid of any electronic waste contact your local government for the nearest avarecycling.com centre.
Important to note this year is that the location for the dumpsters has changed from the in-town site to the new Public Works Barn located at 345 Lively Street. Lively Street is across from Regions Bank on Buford Highway. The collection time is 8am to 3pm and is free.
