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 JCPenney parking lot of the Glynn Place Mall, 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 Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority along with community volunteers providing the majority of volunteer effort.
The 2019 Electronics Recycling & More event is scheduled for Saturday, May 18, 2019, 9AM-1PM. Click HERE for specific 2019 event info.
