RALEIGH, N.C. — The city of Raleigh is willing to take those campaign signs off your hands.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported the city is holding a recycling event Saturday, during which campaign signs will be accepted.

Also being collected are other items the city doesn’t collect at the curb. They include electronics, rigid plastics such as toys, compact florescent light bulbs and plastic bags. Shredders also will be available to shred sensitive papers for recycling.

The city will accept plastic, polybag and paperboard campaign signs and metal frames, but no wooden stakes.

The recycling drive will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the corner of St. Albans Drive and Dartmouth Road.

Keep NC Beautiful organized the event to mark America Recycles Day.
