Free Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Collection and Document-Shredding Event to be held Saturday, April 16
The City of Benbrook encourages citizens to recycle electronic items whenever possible. The City is hosting a FREE event for residents of Benbrook to recycle electronic and appliance items on Saturday, April 16, from 8:00AM until 12:00PM noon at Dutch Branch Park, rear parking lot behind Par 3 Golf. Follow the signs along Winscott Road to Beach Road (same location as Household Hazardous Waste event behind the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA, 1899 Winscott).
Innovative Electronics will be on-site to collect E-Waste. There will be attendants available to help unload items.
As a rule of thumb, if it can be plugged in, it can be recycled. The following is a list of common items that citizens can bring for recycling:
• Televisions (any size)/Radios/Telephones• Computers/monitors/printers (Innovative Electronics destroys the hard drive)• Fax Machines/Copiers• Microwave ovens/Dishwashers/Washers/Dryers/Refrigerators• Gaming systems (Xbox, PlayStations, etc.)• Vacuum Cleaners• VCR’s• Smoke detectors• Batteries
Instant Shredding will provide a shredding truck and will shred documents on-site. Please limit documents to a reasonable household amount (no large quantities of business documents).
