ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- If you’re anything like most Americans, you likely have your fair share of the estimated 2.5 trillion tons of electronics that have reached the end of their useful life. Luckily, you live in a city that makes it incredibly easy for you to recycle. The Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission invites all city residents to participate in the upcoming electronics recycling event which is free of charge.

The event will be held on Oct. 6 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the Haynes Bridge Road parking lot of Alpharetta City Hall.

A list of items that will be accepted as well as those that will be excluded can be found on the city’s website at http://www.alpharetta.ga.us/index.php?m=articles&id=896

Natural Resources Commission Mission Statement: Lead and educate the community to protect, conserve and beautify Alpharetta's natural resources.

The NRC is a diverse group of individuals from the Alpharetta community who have been appointed by the Mayor and City Council. Our primary objectives are to promote the benefits of maintaining a healthy tree canopy and to provide opportunities for citizens to become engaged in protecting the City's natural environment. We sponsor educational workshops and events relating to tree preservation, planting and beautification, litter prevention, waste reduction, recycling, and water quality. Information about these events and volunteer opportunities can be found on the City's website at www.alpharetta.ga.us

The NRC meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 pm at City Hall and the public is always welcome.
