CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Shredding all your personal papers and recycling old electronics can seem like a daunting task, but Chesterfield is making this service simple and accessible.
This month, county residents are invited to bring their personal papers to have them securely shredded at no cost as part of the Shred & E-Cycling Event on Saturday, March 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds located at 10300 Courthouse Road.
The event is open to county residents only. Those attending may be asked to provide proof of residency (a driver’s license, utility bill, etc.) if requested.
Overwhelming turnout from previous shred events has prompted the county to increase its capacity at the upcoming occasion to better serve residents. Patrons also can bring old computers, cell phones and other electronics to recycle for a small fee.
All paper items will be shredded for free – residents can bring up to three paper grocery bags full, or up to two small boxes (10 inches by 13 inches by 18 inches).
Computers, laptops, CDs, DVDs, stereos, cell phones and chargers will be recycled for a small fee between $2.50 and $17 depending on the item, size and quantity.
Televisions and computer monitors less than 27 inches will cost $23 to recycle; if those items are 27 inches or larger, a fee of $30 will apply. Hard drives can be shredded for $5.
