Recycle Day

Free metal and paper recycling for Cobb EMC members.

Every year, Cobb EMC hosts a metal and paper recycling event that is free to members. You may bring your old phones, computer equipment, cameras, metal items, small appliances, and refrigerators for proper, eco-friendly disposal. We also offer on-site shredding for secure document destruction, as well as information on ways you can help make a positive impact on our environment.

Cardboard boxes and medicine are not accepted at the event. A cash-only fee applies to TVs ($20) and computer monitors ($10). Attendees are responsible for bringing all items to be recycled to the event. We are not able to pick up items.
