Drop off your items to be recycled or shredded at the Houston County Farm Center Parking Lot from 8:00-11:00 a.m. This free event aims to raise public awareness of the need to securely destroy confidential material in order to prevent identify theft and fraud, as well as to encourage people to recycle their electronics safely.
