2022 Fall Community Recycling Event

Our next Community Recycling Event will be on Saturday, October 15, 2022 from 9AM - 1PM at Jim Miller Park.

We will be accepting electronics, provide onsite paper shredding and accept Hefty Energy Program items.

Accepted Items

Paper Shredding

Protect against identity theft by having documents shredded securely on-site by a licensed, bonded and locally-owned shredding company.  Medical bills, bank and credit card statements, checks, and documents that contain PERSONAL OR SENSITIVE information  is ideal for this event.  Please remove all paper clips/binder clips.  Staples are OK. 

To maintain this FREE service for our residents, please read and abide by these rules:

  • NO file folders, glossy paper, magazines, junk mail, periodicals, newspaper, books,  CDs, DVDs, or binders will be accepted.
  • LIMIT of 10 (TEN) small boxes/banker boxes/kitchen size bags per vehicle will be enforced.  Small plastic bins/recycled bags are acceptable and will be placed BACK into vehicle after emptying.  Large containers/boxes/construction type bags will be REJECTED.
  • We want to serve ALL visitors in a SAFE manner within a short allotted timeframe.   When you park your car, you are in front of heavy duty, hazardous and loud machinery with people dashing back and forth collecting from cars.  STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE.  YOU MAY NOT get out or hold up the line to watch your items be shredded. 
  • Be prepared to unlock your trunk/doors.  WE WILL REMOVE the boxes/bags from your vehicle.  Emptied bags/boxes may be placed back into your vehicle.  We may keep the plastic bags for the Hefty® EnergyBag®  program.
  • PRESORT your documents BEFORE your arrival (remove any trash/glass, etc.,) this is a hazard to the machinery and everyone on-site.  Boxes/bags that have items that cannot be shredded will be left in your vehicle.  You will NOT be allowed to sort through bags/boxes on site.
