LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Gwinnett officials are planning the county's second annual America Recycles Day celebration.
Hosted by the Gwinnett County Solid Waste Division, the event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 19 at Coolray Field, home of the Gwinnett Braves.
"This event emphasizes the importance of environmental sustainability for the future of Gwinnett County, in addition to giving back to those in need," said Tom Keith, director of the Solid Waste Division.
In addition to recycling, paper shredding, tire disposal and electronics turn-in, the celebration will include touch-a-truck displays, family activities, giveaways and refreshments. There will be a $10 fee to recycle televisions; everything else is free. Attendees are encouraged to bring canned food for the Salvation Army.
Coolray Field is located at 1 Braves Avenue in Lawrenceville.
