Keep Forsyth County Beautiful will hold its biannual electronics recycling event on May 5.

Residents can recycle several types of old, unused electronics from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Cumming Fairgrounds’ parking lot 3 off of Castleberry Road.

Accepted items for recycling include laptops, stereos, CD players, cell phones, microwaves and cameras, among others.

The minimum donation per carload drop-off is $5, while an additional $10 fee will apply for all televisions.

Some items, such as large wooden console TVs, toaster ovens, projector TVs and refrigerators, will not be accepted.

“There is always an amazing turnout for this event and we expect this year to be no different,” said Tammy Wright, environmental program manager.

“Residents who take the time to recycle their unused electronics can make a positive impact on the environment for our entire community.”
