POPULAR E-WASTE RECYCLING & DOCUMENT SHREDDING EVENT JULY 12, 2014

Councilman Steve Madison announces that residents and businesses can safely dispose of electronic waste and have personal documents shredded at the City’s popular electronic “E-Waste” event 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, July 12, 2014, in Parking Lot I outside the Rose Bowl Stadium near Brookside Park, 360 N. Arroyo Blvd. The event is sponsored by the City’s Department of Public Works.

Shredding trucks and e-waste collection sites will be arranged at different stations in Parking Lot I. Look for signs directing you to the event. Motorists and bicyclists are advised to use caution while traveling through the area.

E-waste items include computers, keyboards, printers, monitors, laptops, docking stations, scanners, shredders, fax machines, computer mice, telephones, televisions, flat screens, VCRs, DVD players, PDAs, cassette players, tape drives, stereos and household batteries. Many of these products have parts that can be recycled.

Public Works is also helping residents prevent identity theft by providing free paper shredding during the event. The public can bring a maximum of five small boxes for shredding. Sensitive documents and files such as receipts, checks, pre-approved credit applications, credit card statements, outdated tax returns, pre-printed envelopes, return address labels and business cards are items that can be shredded.
