ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds got a chance to ditch their old electronics for free.

Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful and Atlanta Recycling Solutions partnered to allow citizens to drop off old Televisions, Computers, printers and even microwaves.

The company said they received an estimated 700 items that, instead of ending up in a landfill, will now be recycled.

"Everything here gets torn down and recycled so the glass goes back to glass, plastic to plastic, steal to steal, we're a zero landfill company so nothing goes into the landfill," said David Loxsom, Atlanta Recycling Solutions.

The company travels to cities throughout Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama collecting the old electronics.

It normally costs $10 to drop off a TV. This time the city and county picked up the tab.

They plan to be back in Albany in September.
