Woodstock will host a “Go Green” recycling event Saturday, Nov. 17, to collect electronics, clothing and documents in need of shredding.

The collection is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Woodstock Elementary School, 230 Rope Mill Road. The city is partnering with Premier Surplus, Waste Management, USAgain and Georgia Document Destruction for the event.

Premier Surplus will take and process old electronics. Items will be taken without charge except for TVs ($25), projection TVs ($40), CRT monitors ($10) and LCD monitors with a broken screen ($5).

Cell phones will be collected for the Cell Phones for Soldiers program. For safety reasons, donors of batteries are asked to place clear tape across the terminals. Compact fluorescent light bulbs (not the long tubes), hearing aids, eye glasses, newspapers and magazines also will be accepted.

USAgain will take clothing, belts, shoes, hats, bedding, towels, curtains, purses and backpacks. Georgia Document Destruction will accept residential documents, up to five boxes per car.
