Recycle used large items and shred old or sensitive documents during Johns Creek’s Bulky Items Recycling Day.

Johns Creek residents are invited to bring their items to recycle or shred Saturday at State Farm’s Atlanta Operations Center at 11350 Johns Creek Pkwy. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“This event is intended to collect electronics, books and large items that can be recycled,” said Johns Creek Solid Waste Manager James Swope. “For large items not suitable for recycling, please use your private waste hauler’s curbside collection.”

Use of the commercial document shredder will be limited to 10 boxes per user.

Acceptable items to recycle include refrigerators, washers, dryers, appliances, books, computers and accessories, televisions, cell phones, bicycles, grills, metal items and lawn mowers with fluids removed.

Furniture, mirrors, lamps, kitchenware, linens, working microwave ovens, cribs, changing tables, highchairs and shoes will also be accepted as long as they are in good, reusable condition. Reusable items will be donated to charity. Items that will not be accepted include: torn, broken or stained furniture; mattresses and box springs; office or outdoor furniture; pianos; game tables; large entertainment centers; clothing; toys; rugs or carpet; exercise equipment; pet equipment; tires; hospital beds or waterbeds; light fixtures and window treatments; playpens, strollers or car seats; paint; hazardous waste; fluids; construction and demolition materials; yard debris and household trash.
