MONTHLY RECYCLING EVENT HELPS SAVE THE PLANET.
Get into the Earth Day (April 22) and spring-cleaning spirit early this year by taking advantage of Keep Atlanta Beautiful’s free recycling event, held on the first Saturday each month in Buckhead. De-clutter your life while supporting the environment by dropping off old paint cans, aluminum, Styrofoam, cardboard, tires, magazines, electronics, appliances and other items you may have lying around that can’t be recycled curbside. “Recycling keeps materials out of landfills, where some materials take decades to decompose, and reduces energy use by not having to make new products from virgin materials,” says Peggy Denby, Keep Atlanta Beautiful’s executive director. In 2015 alone, some 4,250 residents visited the Buckhead drop-off. Now it’s time to do your part. – JB
