Norcross to host clean up and recycling day

NORCROSS -- The city of Norcross will host its annual neighborhood cleanup day later this month, offering both residents and visitors the opportunity to recycle paper and electronics.

Different portions of the event will be held throughout the day on Sept. 29.

American Security Shredding will be at Norcross City Hall from 9 a.m. to noon, collecting paper products for shredding. Electronics Recycling will be at the Norcross community center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect old cellphones, computers and keyboards for proper disposal.

Attendees are also urged to bring canned and non-perishable food items to support the city's "CAN" Do for Hunger campaign.

Events are open to the public and generally accessible for free, but there are small fees for dropping off some recyclable items. For information and addresses, visit the code enforcement page on www.norcrossga.net.

City residents only will have access to Dumpsters located at the Norcross public works facility in order to dispose of large and unrecyclable items. Those Dumpsters will be available for use from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
