Cell phone recycling drive to benefit domestic violence shelter
Keep Conyers Rockdale Beautiful sets up drop boxes in September

Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful is hosting a Cell Phone Recycling Drive with boxes at public locations throughout the month of September.

The free, month-long eco-conscious event offers citizens a place to safely discard and recycle cell phones in an effort to prevent hazardous substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic from leaking into Rockdale's water supply. KCRB will accept cell phones regardless of the condition. Residents are encouraged to recycle newer, gently-used cell phones and are asked to remove the SIM card prior to drop off.

All cell phones collected will be donated to Project ReNeWal, a non-profit domestic violence intervention program servicing citizens in Rockdale, Newton and Walton Counties. The organization provides victims with essential information, resources and support to transition out of violent situations into independent living.

Drop boxes to discard unwanted cell phones will be available beginning Sept. 1 at the following locations:
