Bulky Waste Round Up Event on June 21, 2014

Annual Bulky Waste and Electronics Collection Day for Whitfield County Announced

The 2014 Bulky Waste Round Up is scheduled for Saturday, June 21, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm at four drop-off locations in Whitfield County.  During the event Whitfield county residents may properly dispose of or recycle bulky waste without paying transportation fees.  The main location is the Old Dixie Hwy. Landfill and Convenience Center at 4189 Old Dixie Hwy. S.E., in Dalton.  Additional locations are the parking lots for Westside Middle School, North Whitfield Middle School, and the old Eastbrook Middle School gym parking lot facing Hill Street.  

Bulky waste refers to items that are too big for a typical household garbage can, like furniture and appliances.  Each of the four drop-off locations will be accepting bulky waste such as mattresses, box springs, sofas, couches, indoor furniture, appliances, baby or child car seats, bookshelves, large plastic toys, grills, swing sets, gym equipment, plastic swimming pools, patio furniture, basketball goals, and scrap metal. 

Electronics to be collected at each location include items like laptop and desktop computers, MP3 players, video game systems, digital cameras, video recorders, DVD players, cellphones, smartphones, scanners, printers, tablets, current television sets, and eBook readers.

Items that are not accepted at the three school locations include tires, home remodeling debris or waste, and household hazardous waste.  Those items need to be delivered to the Old Dixie Highway Landfill and Convenience Center location during the event hours.  Tires will be charged the regular recycling rate that starts as low as $2.00 per tire for passenger vehicles.  Home remodeling debris can be properly disposed of for at the special rate of 1 cent per pound.  Household Hazardous Waste, which includes items such as household pesticides, swimming pool chemicals, varnish and latex paints, can be dropped off free of charge.  For more information about each category visit www.DWSWA.org, call 706-277-2545, or 706-278-5001.

If you are unable to attend the event this year, please note that Household Hazardous Waste is accepted at the Old Dixie Hwy. Landfill and Convenience Center on the third Saturday of each month from 7 am to 2 pm.  Electronics, scrap metal, and bulky waste are accepted year round for no charge at the same location, Monday thru Friday 7 am to 6 pm, and Saturday 7 am to 3 pm.  Three additional Convenience Centers in Whitfield County also accept tires and bulky waste year round with applicable fees.

No matter what you need to drop-off or when, don’t forget to secure your load for cleaner roads. Tie down and put a tarp on items placed in the back of a pick-up truck or trailer. 

Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful, the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority, and Whitfield County Public Works organize this annual event.  For more information or to volunteer, call Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful at 706-226-6211, or e-mail lswafford@dwswa.org.

Toss out that broken mouse in your desk drawer. Throw away that old printer you haven’t used in years.

The Dalton-Whitfield Regional Solid Waste Authority, Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful and Atlanta Recycling Solutions are hosting an “e-waste” recycling event on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Home Depot parking lot off Shugart Road.

“We’ve had a big increase in people calling wanting to recycle their old electronics, so we are really doing this at the citizens’ request,” said Bridget Sanford, director of recycling programs for the solid waste authority.

Residents can bring old computers, fax machines, telephones, video games, copiers, digital cameras, VCRs, shredders, microwaves, calculators and other electronics and drop them off free of charge for recycling.

They can also bring TVs, but there will be a $10 charge to take those. Sanford said that’s the fee charged by the company that recycles electronics for the solid waste authority.

“That’s the only thing we have to charge for. TVs, there just isn’t enough recyclable material in there,” Sanford said.

Residents are asked not to bring smoke detectors, household appliances and car batteries.

If you can’t make it Saturday, don’t worry. Recyclable electronics can be dropped off Monday through Friday at the solid waste authority’s recycling center at 4189 Old Dixie Highway. Again, there’s no charge for computers and such, but there’s a $10 charge for old TVs.
