Computers that have become outdated continue to pile up in the garage. Old computers from desktops to laptops pile up around the house, as do old stereos, tape recorders, and tape players. There are also so many more electronic items you can recycle. Sometimes you just don’t know what to do with them, without taking them to the local landfill, which has restrictions on electronics.
You have a window of opportunity March 20 at Kennesaw State University, off Chastain Road, to offload old electronic devices for recycling. From 9am to 3pm drop off your old electronics at the Kennesaw State University Busbee Center. You will find convenient drop-off in the South parking lot. Once you see BrandSmart you are traveling in the right direction.
The electronics recycling event, to be held March 20, is jointly conducted by the Kennesaw Environmental Committee and Environmental Education Alliance of Georgia.
This is the opportunity you have been waiting for to clean out the garage, the closet, and let go of the 8 track cassette player that you will never use because you wore out your 8 track tapes years ago. A list of acceptable recycling donations and unacceptable items can be found below.

Recyclers in Atlanta, take initiative to start an electronics recycling round-up
Notify your friends and neighbors. Have everyone gather their equipment together and designate an SUV or pick-up truck to make the delivery on March 20. It’s a great way to begin spring cleaning and clear out the items that will never sell at a garage sale.
We can work together to make a difference and this is an easy way to do it. So, let’s get busy making neighbors and co-workers aware of the event.
This electronics recycling event is open to everyone. You do not have to be a resident of Kennesaw.
Alternate drop-off spot for Douglas and Paulding; CFC nonprofit will deliver to the Kennesaw event.
Residents in the Douglasville and Paulding (Hiram, Dallas) area of Georgia may drop of electronics at Community Fellowship Church. Contact Pastor Murdock at 678-923-7710 to make sure someone will be there to receive your recyclables. Community Fellowship is committed to community service and will make sure your items are delivered on the 20th.
