Shredding all your personal papers and recycling old electronics can seem like a daunting task, but Chesterfield is making this service simple and accessible.
Next 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 July 13 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds. Residents can also 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.
For more information, call 804-748-1297.
