This Saturday, May 12th, the 9th District will host a FREE Spring shredding, e-recycling, and shoe donation event from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in the lower parking lot of the Mellwood Arts Center, located at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, across from Mom’s Music. This will be a DRIVE-THRU event.
Acceptable donation items are:
Shredding by Shred-It: Bring personal and confidential documents you no longer need to be shredded and then recycled. There is no limit on the amount of material residents may bring. Businesses will not be allowed to participate in this event. Items that can be brought for shredding include: documents, discs, hard drives, credit cards and other confidential materials.
E-Recycling by Eco-Cell: Acceptable items include handheld electronics—cell phones, cell phone accessories, digital cameras, iPods and MP3 players, handheld game systems, GPS handheld units, laptops, e-readers and portable hard drives.
Shoe Donation by EDGE Outreach: Collected shoes have two purposes; keep used shoes out of landfills and raise money for water projects. Once collected, EDGE sells the shoes to an exporter generating money for training and water projects in developing countries. Any type of shoes can be donated regardless of their condition as long as the top part of the shoe is still attached to the sole. Pair the shoes together by tying the laces or with string or rubber bands.
