The event features a Pharmaceutical Take Back, Paper Shredding and E-Waste Drive.
"Our Go Green events get more popular year after year," said Councilwoman Bonner. "It's a great opportunity for people to clean out their medicine cabinets, file cabinets, drawers and closets and do it in an environmentally friendly way."
The following items can be recycled at the E-Waste event:
- VCR and DVD Players
- Computer Mice
- Hard Drives
- Electronic Typewriters
- Circuit Boards
- Power Supplies
- Radios / Stereos
- Backup Batteries
- Cell Phones
- Answering Machines
- Fax Machines
- Gameboys and other Handheld Electronic Toys
The Pharmaceutical Take Back will accept any and all prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. By safely disposing these items, residents will help keep unwanted medications out of the hands of children and out of our groundwater.
At the Paper Shredding event, residents can bring their papers in boxes or bags to be safely and securely shredded and recycled. Documents can remain stapled together, but rubber bands, paper clips and other metal must be removed.
