Electronics & More Recycling Event
Keep Golden Isles Beautiful’s annual Electronics & More Recycling event is an opportunity for community members to purge their households of many items difficult to recycle locally.
Held each Spring in the Glynn Place Mall end parking lot (facing Scranton Rd), the event provides participants with an easy “drive through” experience where volunteers do all of the heavy lifting and disposing of collected materials.
Volunteers are essential in this event with the Brunswick Job Corps, Brunswick High School Jr ROTC and others along with community volunteers providing the majority of volunteer effort.
The 2020 Electronics Recycling & More event has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 24, 2020 / 9AM-1PM. Click HERE for specific 2020 event info. ***NO PAPER SHREDDING AT THE 2020 EVENT.
