Keep Anderson County Beautiful (KACB) will be hosting a special recycling program at Anderson County Career Technical Center at 140 Maverick Circle in Clinton next to the Anderson County High School on Saturday, November 7th from 10 AM to 2 PM (rain or shine). The event will be held on the school road that parallels Rt. 61.
Scott Recycling of Knoxville will be recycling old computers and peripherals, cell phones, rechargeable and button batteries, compact fluorescent light bulbs (no tubes), used books (not text books), and eyeglasses and blankets and towels (for the animal shelters). For televisions and computer monitors, there is a charge of $10 per unit and $5 per unit for computer printers. This is due to current expenses associated with recycling CRT screens and plastic printer casings. No TV cabinetry will be accepted. Scott Recycling from Knoxville will be recycling the electronics.
Personal document shredding will be done by the company Shred-It at no charge courtesy of ORNL Federal Credit Union. 10 AM to 2 PM.
Each year Americans generate millions of tons of waste in homes and communities. KACB urges everyone to take the pledge to reduce, reuse and recycle by learning about the recycling options in the community, finding out what materials are collected for recycling, reducing personal waste by recycling and starting to recycle one new type of material,
The event is part of the national America Recycles Day, sponsored by Keep America Beautiful. For additional information about America Recycles Day, go to www.keepandersoncountybeautiful.org.
