CANCELLED - Christmas Tree and Electronics Recycling Event Set for Saturday, January 7

Event Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather - Sorry guys! The Christmas Tree and Electronics Recycling Event scheduled for Saturday, January 7 at The Home Depot has been cancelled due to the expected snow and extremely cold temperatures. Please stay home, safe, and warm this weekend!  (Please note: This event is NOT being rescheduled.) 

 

The Home Depot does have a collection area for live natural undecorated Christmas trees set up in the parking lot in front of the garden center. You can still stop by and drop off your tree thru Sunday, January 8. (Monday morning Whitfield County Public Works will be there to collect and chip the trees so they will be recycled into mulch!!)  

 

Electronics can be dropped off year round at the Old Dixie Hwy. Landfill & Convenience Center at 4189 Old Dixie Hwy. in Dalton. There is a $10 fee to recycle television sets and computer monitors with large bulbs or CRTs. Other electronic devices like laptops, video game consoles, and smartphones can be dropped off for free.  The Old Dixie Hwy. location is open Monday to Friday from 7 am to 6 pm, and Saturday from 7 am to 3 pm. For direction to Old Dixie call 706-277-2545 or 706-278-5001. 

 

Natural, live, undecorated Christmas trees can be dropped off at one of four convenience centers in Whitfield County that have an area to collect yard trimmings or leaf and limb debris. For a convenience center location near you visit www.DWSWA.org. If you have garbage pickup at home from the city of Dalton you may qualify for brush collection at the curb.

Electronic waste piling up

The Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority's electronics recycling program was featured in a story by the Chattanooga Times Free Press on January 20, 2011. To read the whole story click here: Electronic Waste Piling Up

Whitfield County and Dalton, Ga., have collected e-scrap since the county collected 13.4 tons in its first drop-off event in February 2008, said Liz Swafford with the Dalton-Whitfield Solid Waste Authority.
In 2010, the waste authority collected 12.66 tons of e-scrap for recycling — equivalent to the weight of 10 compact cars, Swafford said.

Electronics recycling is available year round at the Old Dixie Hwy. Landfill and Convenience Center location only. Please see the on site attendant for assistance.
