“I dropped off untold pounds of shredding at this event. I went first just to see how long the wait was and how cumbersome the process. Wow, was I surprised. I was in and out in about 60 seconds – no exaggeration! Everyone there was informed, professional and very helpful. This is such a great service we have thanks to KeepAtlantaBeutiful.org and ProShred, who offered the free paper shredding. I will be back with my paint, Styrofoam and electronics next time. Thanks to all the folks who made this happen! ” -Kristi Warren Evans

Our mission has always been to beautify the city by being tough on litter, but in recent years we realized we had a huge opportunity and duty to expand our mission to include education and awareness about waste minimization and recycling. According to a recent report from the Computer Equipment Disposal and Recycling Council, there are at least 4.4 million PCs and 8 million TVs in the 3 million households in the Georgia. With the rapid pace of new technology and TV stations converting to digital broadcast the accumulation of obsolete electronics is becoming an increasing problem. Currently, Georgia law does not ban landfill disposal of e-waste coming from residential sources, although some landfills will not accept them. The improper disposal of eScrap, which contains such toxic substances as lead and mercury, may have serious implications on public health and the health of our environment.
