Spring Recycle and Collection Event to be held May 16

The annual Spring Recycle and Collection event, originally scheduled for April 25, has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 16 at the Granville County Expo and Convention Center. Hours are from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., with vendors on site offering document shredding services; the collection of electronics, scrap metal, hardback books and other items; and proper disposal of medications, sharps, inhalers, flares, ammunition and fireworks. Polystyrene/styrofoam – not including packing peanuts – will also be collected during this event, as well as pet supplies for the Granville County Humane Society.


“The spring recycle and collection event gives residents an opportunity to protect our environment while spring cleaning,” said Granville County Recycling Coordinator Teresa Baker. “Shred Ace, GFL, the Granville County Sheriff’s Office, the Humane Society and other vendors and organizations will be on site and ready to take unwanted items for recycling, shredding, re-purposing or proper disposal.”


To encourage backyard composting – another way to recycle by turning organic materials into soil nutrients – compost bins and countertop caddies will be available for sale during this event.



The Granville County Expo Center is located at 4185 U.S. Hwy. 15 South in Oxford. For more information about this event, contact Baker at 919-725-1417 or email her at
