Tucker, GA — The Rotary Club of Tucker and Rotary Club of Stone Mountain will hold an electronics recycling event on Nov. 20 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at Handy Hardware, 3969 Lawrenceville Hwy, Tucker.

Electronics and gently used home medical equipment will be accepted at the drive. CRT monitors and CRT televisions will not be accepted. Wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, commode chairs and shower benches will be accepted for recycling at no charge.

Held in the parking lot, donors are not required to get out of their cars or make contact with volunteers, who will help remove donated items from the trunk or rear of vehicles. Volunteers will be masked and practice social distancing.

All proceeds will benefit Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC). Funds and equipment collected from the event will support FODAC’s mission to supply home medical equipment to mobility impaired people and their caregivers, at little or no cost.

Based in Tucker, FODAC serves metro Atlanta by providing recycled equipment for children and adults during or after a health crisis. Last year, FODAC donated over $14 million in equipment at little or no cost to recipients. FODAC, as a member of National VOAD and a partner with FEMA, also provides support in the wake of disasters; the organization is currently working to distribute critical personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks, surgical gloves and gowns to essential medical workers, and medical equipment like CPAPs and ventilators for patients.
