Electronics recycling event to be held at First United Methodist Church in Decatur on August 15 – Decaturish
Decatur, Georgia – The New Life Technology Group will pick up electronics for recycling on Sunday, August 15, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Decatur First United Methodist Church, 300 E. Ponce de Leon Ave.
Anyone bringing electronic devices to church is asked to enter the parking lot from North Candler Street and exit onto Commerce Drive. Masked volunteers will unload the donated items, so that individuals can stay in their vehicles, according to a Facebook post from the city of Decatur.
Used laptops could provide a student in need of computer access with their own refurbished laptop or help a local nonprofit in need of technology. Small plug-in electronics, wires and wiring, cameras, network equipment, fitness trackers or smart watches, power tools and phones are accepted for recycling.
Only flat screen televisions will be accepted for a fee of $ 20. Other large appliances will not be accepted.
