Buckhead residents have another chance to dispose of items they don’t want, but aren’t safe to throw away in regular trash pickups. The annual Buckhead Eco Collection is scheduled for Oct. 11.
“Buckhead’s Eco Collection has become a signature community event,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, one of the organizers of the event. “Over the past three years more than 1,100 people have dropped off paint, electronics and other items for recycling and disposal. This year we are planning for an even larger event.”
This year, residents of ZIP codes 30305, 30309, 30318, 30319, 30324, 30326, 30327 and 30342 will be able to dispose of old electronics, household chemicals, unused paint, expired over-the-counter and prescription medicine, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs and documents that need to be shredded.
Collections will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 515 Garson Dr. A $20 donation is suggested.
