Al Austin, BKBIA to host e-waste drive and shred fest

March 1st, 2013 · No Comments · Community

Eighth District Councilmember Al Austin and the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association are joining together to host the district’s annual e-waste drive and shred fest on Saturday, March 2.
The event will take place at Scherer Park, at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard, in front of the North Division Police Station. Shredding documents will be taken from 9am to noon, and e-waste will be collected from 9am to 2pm.
A local company, Future Shredding, Inc., will destroy the documents on-site and then recycle the paper shreds.
The first five boxes per vehicle are free, and each additional box will be shredded for $5.
In addition, residents can drop off electronic waste, such as old computers, monitors, televisions, plasma screens, DVD players and other electronics, for proper disposal. Proceeds from the donated items will benefit the Expo Arts Center Fund, to support its maintenance and operations.
No batteries, fluorescent tubes or household hazardous waste will be accepted.
For more information, call Austin’s office at (562) 570-6685, or email district8@longbeach.gov .
