ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (WITN) – People of Nash and Edgecombe can properly dispose of recyclable items on Saturday.
Nash County Recycles Day will be March 4, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Nash County Courthouse parking lot in Nashville.
Residents are called to bring unwanted personal documents that need to be shredded and electronics or prescription medication that need to be properly discarded. The event is sponsored by Keep America Beautiful, which aims to make Nash and Edgecombe counties cleaner and more attractive.
