Recycling Days

Recycling Days

Recycle your old electronics and securely shred for free

Please join us and participate in Cobb EMC's electronic and metal recycling days. Cobb EMC, in partnership with the City of Acworth, City of Kennesaw and Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, will host recycling days so members can recycle old electronics and dispose of old documents in a safe, secure and eco-friendly manner.

Think green! Look around your house for unwanted items that you can recycle so they don't end up in the landfill. If it's made of metal or you can plug it in, you can recycle it. Gather up those old receipts, records, taxes and bills, and bring them to the secure on-site shredder. See below for a list of acceptable items.
