Shredding and E-Waste Events

Solid Waste Management is no longer coordinating the free paper shredding and electronic waste drop off events. There are several options for residents to have papers shredded, though most involve a fee. Residential electronic waste is accepted at the City's Waste Disposal and Recycling Center free of charge for City residents.
