VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

People in Valdosta can help the environment by safely getting rid of old electronics this weekend.
 
Keep Lowndes Valdosta Beautiful will hold their bi-annual electronics recycling event Saturday.
Organizers are expecting a big turnout.
 
"We encourage all residents who have electronics sittin' around and don't know how to get rid of 'it to come on out on Saturday," said John Whitehead, Deputy City Manager. "For televisions, there is a $10 charge to discard those. The only thing that we ask that you not bring out are microwaves."
 
The event is at Mathis City Auditorium and will run from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.
