DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION DATES FOR 2012
Listed below are the dates, times and location for membership counties Electronic Recycling Events and Document Destruction events. At the bottom of the page is a link that will take you to a list what what can, and cannot be recycled at these events. Please note that Union, Towns and Lumpkin Counties will accept TV's for a $10 charge at these events. Banks County will only be having a Document Destruction Event. We wish to thank our partners, Document Destruction Service and Atlanta Recycling Solutions for working with us to provide these services.
FOR UNION COUNTY AND TOWNS COUNTY RESIDENTS:
The following date is set up for Document Destruction and Electronics Recycling in TOWNS and UNION Counties:
September 29, 2012 from 10:00 until 12:00.
This event will be held on the corner of Hwy 76 and Timberline Road at the edge of Young Harris College grounds. A reminder, a volunteer donation of $5.00 per car will be requested with all funds going to the Mountain Animal Shelter. They will have their volunteer there to collect the donation. Over the last three years we have been able to supply them with over $1500 to support animals until they find their "forever" homes. We appreciate our partnership with the Mountain Shelter! There is an additional $10.00 fee for TV's. This charge is what it costs to recycle TV's due to the high amount of mercury in the glass. All other electronics are recycled free of charge.
