Paper Shredding 2021.jpg

CONYERS – Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) is holding the first of two Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding events in 2021 for Rockdale residents and business owners. The E-recycling and paper shredding event will be held Saturday, May 15, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., in the parking lot at 1400 Parker Road, Conyers.

The free, half-day event will provide the public a place to safely discard and recycle old documents and electronics, regardless of working condition.

There is a maximum of four banker boxes per vehicle allowed for paper shredding, and participants must provide photo ID as proof of an address in the county for both shredding and recycling. Professional electronics recycling and paper shredding companies will securely handle all items on site under the close supervision of government staff. Once the shredding truck is full, shredding services for the day will end.

Cash fees will apply to certain items for electronics recycling, including $25 each for TVs and CRT monitors. All other electronics are free to recycle. The following is a list of items accepted/not accepted at the event.
