Collingswood to host paper shredding and electronic waste recycling event on August 29

Have a box of loose wires after your recent home reorganization project? Piles of old computer equipment collecting dust in your basement? Old batteries hanging around your junk drawer? The Borough of Collingswood wants to help you properly and safely dispose of your personal "junk" at our shredding and electronic waste recycling event.
Prevent identity theft and help the environment by bringing your personal documents (paper only--no catalogs or junk mail) and electronic waste to our special recycling event. The Borough will provide a shredding truck and will collect electronics for safe disposal.
**The collection will be drive-up only**
Vehicles must enter at Collings Avenue adjacent to the Collingswood Senior Community Center. Residential only; no commercial shredding.
If you are unable to attend this event, you may drop off electronic waste items at the Department of Public Works (next to the Community Center) August 24 to 28 between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Electronic waste includes:
laptops, keyboards, ipads, speakers, radio equipment, phones, CDs, VCR tapes, batteries, and more.
