VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - If you have old electronics you need to get rid of, you can drop them off at a recycling event in Valdosta Saturday.

Disposing of the items in an environmentally friendly manner will keep hazardous materials out of our landfills.

Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful and the City of Valdosta is hosting an event tomorrow to dispose of cell phones, computers, and other electronic items.

"A lot of the material on the electronics is recyclable but not many people know that," said John Whitehead, Valdosta Deputy City Manager of Operations. "We like to take the plastics and turn those into useable parts. We like to take the aluminum and metals and turn those into useable parts."

The event is from 9 to 1 at Mathis City Auditorium. To find out more on what can be recycled, click here.
