Celebrate Earth Day on Monday April 22 in Dunwoody by Recycling Unused Paint, Green Expo on Sat, City Council on Monday, Stream Clean up next week

Dunwoody Nature Center and the City of Dunwoody Sustainability Commission help residents divert landfill waste.

As Dunwoody residents take part in the age-old tradition of spring cleaning, what to do with old or unusable household supplies can be a mystery. To help demystify the process, the City of Dunwoody, with the support of Atlanta Paint Disposal, is sponsoring an Earth Day paint recycling event on Monday, April 22, 2013.

Residents will have the option of dropping off unwanted paint at two locations: Dunwoody Nature Center 5343 Roberts Drive or Brook Run Park 4470 North Peachtree Road, near the skate park. For a fee of $1 per gallon, residents can drop off any unwanted latex paints and promote healthier air and water quality in the process. Both locations will be open for drop-offs from 8:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. Oil-based paints will not be accepted.
green expo
Ready to go green?  The Dunwoody Sustainability Commission has partnered with the DeKalb County Green Commission and the Decatur Environmental Sustainability Board to offer the 2013 Green Expo—a free local green vendor shopping and educational workshop.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Conference Center at Georgia Piedmont Technical College (495 North Indian Creek Road, Clarkston, GA 30021).
The City Council Work Session will begin at 6 p.m., with the City Council Meeting to follow at 7 p.m. Both are held at Dunwoody City Hall, 41 Perimeter Center East, Suite #103. Click here for the meeting agendas.
stream clean up
The City will be cleaning the Nancy Creek tributary for our stream clean-up event!  We will start at the north point of the creek adjacent to 2030 Pernoshal Court and clean as far as we can—the more volunteers we have, the more we can accomplish! 
Please contact Drew Cutright if you would like to sign-up to volunteer at for stream clean-up. Be sure to bring your working clothes and creek shoes!
