An electronics recycling event coordinated by Keep Newnan Beautiful is being held Saturday as part of the Greener Greater Newnan Festival and America Recycles Day.

Electronics received from the event are taken to the processing center of IMS in Decatur, Ga. The items are sorted for reuse if at all possible and given to non-profits or charitable groups. Each component received is broken down to the basic materials such as plastics, metals, glass, circuit boards and wire. These components are then forwarded to various companies for the re-manufacturing of new items.
