Additional Information

Rules

  • All residents must wear a mask.
  • We advise residents only send one person per household.
  • Residents disposing of e-waste will not need to leave their cars. They should clearly label what is e-waste and what is not, and the recycling crew will remove it from their trunks/cars.
  • Residents looking to shred paper will be asked to place their documents in a bin next to the shred trucks.

Documents

Documents brought in for shredding will be dumped into a 65-gallon container and then into the shredder, enabling each participant to witness the secure destruction of sensitive papers. Paper can be brought in boxes or bags. Documents can remain stapled together, but paper clips and other metal must be removed along with any other contaminants such as rubber bands.

Electronics

Residents are urged to bring the following electronic items to be recycled:
