As part of its first annual “Green Week,” Georgia Gwinnett College invites Gwinnett residents to drop off old appliances Mar. 3, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Admissions Building parking lot at the corner of Collins Hill Road and Collins Industrial Way.

The collection is part of a week of “green” events sponsored by the GGC Environmental Club, the student chapter of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) and the Office of Student Involvement.

Residents are invited to drop off old computers, laptops, copiers, ink cartridges, appliances, televisions and non-ferrous metals, or those containing iron. There is no charge for the drop-off, but the student chapter of AITP will earn proceeds for collecting these items for recycling. These proceeds will help defray costs of a trip to a national conference where AITP members will compete academically.

Georgia Gwinnett College is located just off Highway 316, across from the Lawrenceville Wal-Mart and only about 1/4 mile west of the intersection of 316 with Route 20/Buford Drive. From Highway 316, residents should turn north onto Collins Hill Road and take the first left onto Collins Industrial Way. Then take an immediate right into the Admissions Building parking lot.
