Valdosta holds electronics recycling day


On Saturday, November 9th, the city of Valdosta will hold an electronics recycling day.

Residents in Valdosta and the surrounding area are encouraged to come and drop off any old cell phones, computers or other electronics they may have lying around.

The event is held twice a year and is part of the "Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful" (KLVB) campaign.

Aaron Strickland, Executive Director of KLVB, said this event is about giving residents a way to help keep their community clean.

"What we're trying to do is divert all these electronics from the landfill and recycle them," Strickland said. "Since 2006, KLVB has recycled 234 tons or a little over 460,000 pounds of electronics."

The event will be held at 2300 N. Ashley St. in Valdosta from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
