Our fall classic is back! Our annual, FREE Paper Shredding and Electronic Waste Collection event will be held Saturday, October 24, from 9 a.m. to noon, at City Hall, 4455 W. 126th Street.
There is no limit on the amount of paper residents can bring, and all paper will be shredded on site. We collected and recycled over 2 tons of paper last year—let’s see if we can do even more this time around!
All electronics, such as computers, tablets, TVs, DVD players, DVRs, cell phones, iPods, and similar devices, will also be accepted for recycling.
You can pick up FREE COMPOST, courtesy of Republic Services. Compost will enrich your soil and help conserve water. Bring your own bags or containers for compost and fill them up with as much compost as you want. Compost will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
In addition, we will be giving away FREE emergency supply containers, while supplies last. The emergency supply containers are durable, watertight containers where you can store vital emergency supplies.
