Major Charlotte recycling event Wednesday

You have an opportunity today to get rid of those hard-to-dispose items that have been in your garage or shed for too long.

Piedmont Natural Gas is teaming with the City of Charlotte, Goodwill Industries and ProShred for the second annual Earth Day-related Recycling Extravaganza.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the traffic circle outside the Piedmont Gas offices in the SouthPark area, at 4720 Piedmont Row Drive in Piedmont Town Center. You’ll be able to dispose of items such as old documents, used computers and other electronics, or batteries and light bulbs.

Piedmont Natural Gas says Charlotte-area residents dropped off nearly 2,000 pounds of computers, other electronics, batteries and other items last year. In addition, people dropped off about 3.5 tons of paper products.

Piedmont Natural Gas is sponsoring a full week of Earth Day activities in the community and with its employees.
