McDONOUGH — The Henry County Stormwater Management Department is hosting an Electronics Recycling Event on Sept. 14 at the Jason T. Harper Event Center in McDonough.
Residents will be able to bring unneeded or unused electronics and have them recycled for free, or for a small processing fee.
Flat screens, LCD, LED and smart televisions have a processing fee of $5, TVs with rear projections have a processing fee of $25, cathode ray tube monitors and televisions less than 19 inches have a processing fee of $15, CRT monitors and televisions that are 19 to 27 inches have a processing fee of $20 and CRT monitors and televisions greater than 27 inches and rear projections have a processing fee of $25.
Electronics in working and non-working condition will be accepted, and much be removed from boxes, bags or packaging.
Angelo Teachout, the environmental outreach coordinator for Henry County’s Stormwater Management Department, spoke of the importance of the event and why he thinks citizens should participate.
“Pollution prevention and sustainable waste management are everyone’s responsibility,” Teachout said in a release. “This recycling event will help promote social and environmental stewardship and discourage dumping and pollution of our shared water resources.”
The event is a recycling drop-off collection, and participants will not be reimbursed for their electronics.
The Jason T. Harper Event Center is located at 95 Lake Dow Road in McDonough.
