Appliance drop-off event is Saturday

LAWRENCEVILLE -- As part of its inaugural Green Week, Georgia Gwinnett College invites Gwinnett residents to drop off old appliances from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the admissions building parking lot at the corner of Collins Hill Road and Collins Industrial Way.

The collection effort is part of a week of green events sponsored by the GGC Environmental Club, the student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals and the Office of Student Involvement.

Residents can drop off old computers, laptops, copiers, ink cartridges, appliances, televisions and non-ferrous metals or those containing iron. There is no charge for drop-off, but the student chapter of AITP will earn proceeds for collecting items for recycling. The proceeds will help defray the costs of a trip to a national conference where AITP members will compete academically.

Georgia Gwinnett College is located at 1000 University Center Lane.
