University Park Hosts Shredding Event Saturday

Please watch that video before you read the rest of this post.

Done? Okay. That’s the first thing that pops into my head whenever I hear the word “shredding,” but University Park has another idea. Take it away, Mr. Mace:

University Park will host another document shredding/e-waste disposal event Saturday, October 6 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will take place at the Middle School parking lot. Participation is free of charge.

A wide variety of paper products and documents can be disposed of including:

• Medical records

• Legal files

• Tax records

• Financial records

• Invoices

• Canceled checks

• Blueprints

• Contracts

• Payroll records

• Company letterhead

• Junk mail containing personal information

• Any information with credit card, social security, driver license & account numbers

E-waste items can also be disposed of

That list includes:

• Computers/laptops, computer monitors, computer speakers, keyboards, mice

• Power supplies, printers, fax machines, scanners

• TVs and VCRs

• PDAs and cell phones

Two nationally certified firms will be on site. Greenstar Recycling, the company that recycles all of the refuse collected by the City’s Sanitation Division, will collect and shred all paper documents. Universal Recycling Technologies will collect and dispose of all e-waste items. The company handles disposal of electronic materials at collection events in Dallas and in cities across the U.S.

If there was a way to work “I’m a big man, and I need a big Shredder” into that email, I’m sure Steve would’ve tried. Alas.

    Is it for UP residents only or can HP and Dallas residents contribute?
