Are your home’s file cabinets overflowing with sensitive documents that you no longer need but do not feel safe tossing in the trash? Or do you have an old computer monitor just sitting around that you have been meaning to chunk?
The City of University Park is hosting a free document shredding/e-waste disposal event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the Highland Park Middle School parking lot. Greenstar Recycling and Universal Recycling Technologies will be at the school to collect the materials for proper disposal.
Park Cities residents can bring a variety of paper products to be shredded and disposed of for free, including “medical records, legal files, tax records, financial records, invoices, canceled checks, blueprints, contracts, payroll records, company letterhead, junk mail (and other documents) containing personal information.”
E-waste that can be dropped off includes “computers/laptops, computer monitors, computer speakers, keyboards, mice, power supplies, printers, fax machines, scanners, TVs, VCRs, PDAs and cell phones."
