For a $5 suggested donation per automobile, electronics, textile, battery, light bulb and scrap metal recycling, a prescription drug drop-off and on-site paper shredding services will be available. ($20 per TV fee, no console or projection TVs; $10 per CRT (chunky) monitor; no small appliances; fluorescent and CFL bulbs ONLY, NO light bulbs over 4’, limit 20 light bulbs per auto; limit 10 boxes of paper to be shredded per auto; personal document shredding only, no business shred; only one time through for shred; no watching papers shred).

Volunteers will be on hand to unload materials brought to the event for recycling and the event is open rain or shine.

“The 2019 event again accepts a wide variety of items including all types and condition of textiles, electronics, light bulbs, batteries and even large appliances such as washers, dryers and microwaves. The pill drop-off will be manned by Glynn County Law Enforcement and allows for the safe disposal of unused or expired pills and prescription drugs, including pet medications,” said Lea King-Badyna, KGIB executive director. “We are excited to offer this great recycling opportunity to the general public as part of the Great America Cleanup, the country’s largest community improvement program engaging more than 4 million volunteers in over 20,000 communities nationwide.”

“Many community partners and volunteers come together to make the Electronics Recycling & More event happen,” said KGIB board chairman Clement Cullens. “Golden Isles residents and our coastal environment are the beneficiaries of this massive collaboration, and we thank all who participate and are involved.”
