Rockdale County to Host Electronic Recycling + Paper Shredding Event on October 8 – On Common Ground News

ROCKDALE COUNTY – Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) is hosting the second electronic recycling and paper shredding events of 2022 for Rockdale residents and business owners on Saturday, October 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the car park at 1400 Parker Road, Conyers

The free half-day event will provide the public with a place to safely dispose of and recycle old documents and electronics, regardless of their working condition. Due to other events in the area, attendees can access Parker Road from Flat Shoals Road or from Iris Drive to Royal Drive and Commercial Drive.

There is a maximum of 4 bank boxes per vehicle allowed for paper shredding, and participants must provide photo ID as proof of a county address for shredding and recycling. Professional electronics recycling and paper shredding companies will safely process all items on site under the close supervision of government personnel.
