Recycling/Disposal Tips for You

Formatted HTML message

Hello Everyone!

The Woodstock Mayor and Council would like to offer you tips on the best way to recycle/dispose of hazardous materials you may have in your garage/basement that you'd like to get rid of!

In May of this year, we celebrated our 2nd Annual "Greenstock Day" with an e-recycle event in Woodstock.  Many of you had questions on how to dispose of household paint, batteries, tires, etc.  So here is what we've found to help you:

CFL Bulbs (These are the long lasting bulbs that contain mercury.)

CFL bulbs can be recycled at the Woodstock Home Depot on Hwy 92.  Wrap your bulbs in plastic bags and carefully place them in the container provided near the front door or see the service desk for further assistance.  For more information on the CFL Recycling Program with Home Depot - visit www.homedepot.com/ecooptions.

Household Batteries/Cell Phones

The City of Woodstock has two convenient locations where you can recycle your household batteries and old cell phones. 

Woodstock Annex                Woodstock Community Center
12453 Hwy 92                     108 Arnold Mill Rd - Bldg C
Woodstock, GA                    Woodstock, GA

Car Batteries

The Cherokee Recycling Center located at 470 Blalock Road, Canton, GA stopped taking car batteries as of February 2, 2009.  Other options for disposal would be to trade in your old battery when you purchase the new one.  AAA, battery retailers and auto repair shops will charge a core charge if an old battery is not given to them at the time of the new purchase but will refund you the core charge once they receive the old battery.

Household Paint

Household paint, once dry, is no longer a hazardous waste.  Therefore it is imperative that BEFORE you dispose of your old paint cans with your regular trash, you make sure the paint is dry by mixing it with an oil dry chemical or clay based kitty litter.  Another option is to pour the paint onto stacks of newspapers or old pizza boxes and let it dry.  Then you can place the papers/boxes in your regular trash container for disposal.

Tires

Typically, landfills will NOT accept tires.  Neither will the Cherokee Recycling Center as of February 2nd. So your best bet is to let the retailer who sells you your new tires, dispose of your old tires.

If you have any tips or ideas to share, please send an email to rpezzello@woodstockga.gov.

Thanks!
