[ARCHIVED] Free Electronic Waste Collection and 3-Hour Document-Shredding Event

Electronic Waste
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. Innovative Electronics Recycling will provide a truck/trailer from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on February 8, 2014.

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)
Computers/monitors/printers (Innovative Electronics destroys the hard drive)
Fax Machines/Copiers
Microwave ovens
Gaming systems (Xbox, PlayStations, etc.)
Vacuum Cleaners
Smoke detectors
They will also accept batteries, but NO light bulbs

Document Shredding
Instant Shredding will provide a shredding truck and will shred documents on-site from
8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ONLY. Please limit documents to a reasonable household amount (no large quantities of business documents, please).
