You may drop cell phones, printer cartridges and used batteries off throughout the year in the designated bins by the stairwell just off Jenkins Hall towards the music/preschool wing. 
 
Twice a year, in the spring and fall,  the Green Team invites you to bring your unwanted electronics to Tucker First and we'll take them to Decatur's Electronics Recycling event for you! Most items are free to recycle, but TVs cost $10.  Please:
  • no microwaves
  • no household appliances
  • no vaccum cleaners
  • no large or bulky items or items over about 40 pounds. 
  • TVs cost $10.  If you bring in a TV, please include $10 in an envelope taped to the device.  You may make a check out to TFUMC and put "electronics recycling" on the memo line. 
Questions? Contact Evelyn Burkett at 404-727-1582.

About Our Electronics Recycling Events
 
Tucker First UMC particpates in the twice-yearly Electronics Recycling events sponsored by the City of Decatur. The City of Decatur recycles electronics twice a year - usually in March and October.  You don't have to go to Decatur yourself to participate.  Drop your electronics off during designated drop off periods at Tucker First UMC, and we'll haul them to Decatur for you!  We'll let you know when to bring your items in.
 
The Decatur event is now held at Decatur Public Works, on the corner of Talley and Columbia Drives. Electronics dropped off the recycling day will be sorted and disassembled into raw materials or cleaned for re use. The Decatur Waste Management Advisory Council investigates the recyclers involved to be sure the items are responsibly disassembled and not landfilled.
