This Saturday, members of the Greenville community will have an opportunity to get into the spirit of the season at Keep Greenville Beautiful’s annual Fall Home & Garden Show.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center (at 5501 Business Highway 69 S), attendees will be greeted by vendors representing various area businesses and organizations presenting their fall-themed items or upcoming fall events and projects.
There will also be food as well as bounce houses and other children’s activities.
In addition to the show itself, an electronics recycling event will be going on from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until the truck is filled) at the Civic Center as well.
Organized by Commodity Recycling Solutions out of Fort Worth, the kinds of items they’ll be accepting include: desktop computers, laptops, cell phones, entertainment equipment, cables wiring, chargers, rechargeable lithium batteries, monitors, tablets, small household electronic items, table top copiers/printers, fax machines, DVD and VHS players, and gaming consoles.
Items they will not be accepting include tires, paint, mattresses, hazardous chemicals, alkaline batteries and paper.
The collection of unwanted electronic devices and parts will be conducted in a drive-thru style and attendees will not need to separate or organize their items in any way.
“After we take the items to our processing facility, they’ll be separated and sent downstream to other recycling facilities that specialize in recycling different kinds of items and materials,” said Commodity Recycling Solutions owner Joan Meeks. “When all is said and done, we expect about 90% of what’s donated to be recycled.”
Those with questions about the recycling component of the event can call or text (817) 300-6958.
