@11:15 I was turned away because they were not accepting electronics any longer. Won't make that drive again.

Mr. Graham,The Solid Waste and Recovered Materials Division appreciates your commitment to environmental sustainability and your efforts to make Gwinnett County a greener place to live, work, and play. This year’s event had an overwhelming response in comparison to previous years, and as a result, we reached our capacity to accept electronics for recycling in a short amount time. We will be hosting another recycling event in April, so we hope you will participate. In the meantime, you can drop off your electronics to your local Staples or Best Buy locations, but please be sure to call before you arrive. In addition, a list of household items and where you can recycle them in Gwinnett can be found on www.sustainablegwinnett.com. Sincerely, Schelly Marlatt, Gwinnett County's Solid Waste & Recovered Materials Division
