Here’s another opportunity for you to rid your home of old electronics, up to four bags or boxes of paper, fluorescent tubes and bulbs and much more during “Edgecombe County Recycles Day.” This event, open to the public, will be held Saturday, April 23, 2016, from 10am to 1pm in the parking lot of the Marrow Pitt Ace Hardware Center, 1713 N Main Street, in Tarboro NC.

During this event, there will also be a long list of accepted electronics, including televisions, computers and monitors, printers and scanners, keyboards, speakers, power and network cables, printed circuit boards, docking stations, routers, VCRs and DVD players, copiers and fax machines, electronic games, rechargeable batteries, telephones, cell phones, radios, stereos, CD players, audio visual equipment, typewriters, fax cartridges, cash registers, video boards and microwaves. Community paper shredding will also take place.

“Our recycling events have proven to be successful, but we want to continue to make them bigger and better,” says Cornelia McGee, coordinator for Keep America Beautiful (KAB) of Nash and Edgecombe counties. “In order to achieve our goals and to keep Rocky Mount litter free, we must first start with community engagement and education. You’ll get that through programs like Edgecombe County Recycles Day, so we invite everyone to meet us Saturday, April 23. It’s an event that will not only allow you to rid your home of some unwanted household items, but you’re also serving an even greater cause.”

This recycling event is sponsored by KAB of Nash and Edgecombe counties, Edgecombe County, and Shred-It of NC.

Shredding is free to the public; however, businesses will be charged for shredding. Monetary donations will be accepted for KAB of Nash and Edgecombe counties.
