This April, Green Starts Here, our Dump-It-Right for Earth Day event will give residents a free opportunity to get rid of items that normally require a disposal fee. All clothing will be donated to the Atlanta Alliance on Developmental Disabilities (AADD), a non-profit organization. Cartridge World, a local print supply recycling company, will be on site to collect ink and laser print cartridges. Blue Rhino, the nation’s leading tank exchange company, will also collect empty propane tanks.
Got tires? Keep DeKalb Beautiful will also be accepting used tires during “Dump it Right Day.” Keep DeKalb Beautiful is focused on increasing recycling efforts of tires, which will preserve natural resources. Individuals are limited to10 tires per car load. Off-road tires will not be accepted.
Additional items collected will include scrap metal, and “junk” that are typically illegally dumped.
EXAMPLES OF “UNWANTED” ITEMS ACCEPTED:
Appliances Gently Used Clothing
Ink and Laser Print Cartridges Scrap Metal
Furniture Gardening Equipment
Mattresses Propane Tanks (must be empty)
We will not be accepting electronics, home building and/or construction materials, landscaping materials, household hazardous waste such as paint, batteries, pesticides, and used motor oil.
For more information on what will be accepted, please call Keep DeKalb Beautiful at (404) 371-2654 or visit our website at www.co.dekalb.ga.us/beautiful
