The city of Woodstock is celebrating its annual Greenstock event Saturday by providing residents resources to recycle a plethora of household and business-related items.
The event will be at the Park at City Center from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a coinciding Earth Day celebration from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
With the help of Waste Management and Reworx Recycling, the city is encouraging residents to bring all old electronics to be broken down and processed for reuse without filling up landfills and keeping toxins away from soil and waterways. While most items are free, televisions cost $10 and monitors cost $5 to recycle.
Batteries, cellphones, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, household and car batteries, magazines and newspapers are also accepted. Light bulbs must be sealed in a clear plastic bag.
The city will also partner with Georgia Document Destruction to shred all documents. There will be a limit of five boxes per car.
Cellphones will also be collected for the Cell Phones for Soldiers Program. Each donated phone provides a soldier serving overseas with 60 minutes of prepaid calling service to call their families back home.
The Woodstock Lions Club will also be there to collect eyeglasses and hearing aids to recycle.
The Earth Day celebration will also be at the park and feature a performance by Steven Phillips and the Midnight Express Band. There will also be a bounce house, children’s crafts and eco-friendly vendors. The concert is slated from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
To kick off Great American Cleanup Week next week, the city is
also playing host to a citywide yard sale Saturday. Visit www.wood stockga.gov for a full list of residents and businesses participating.
