Shred, recycle and donate in one easy step

Nancy McCluskey-Moore

Is your home cluttered with useless paper files and electronics? Pack up those unwanted items and bring them to the shredding and recycling event on Saturday, November 11, from 9:00 a.m. to noon or until the truck is full. The event, hosted by Long Realty, Golder Ranch, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach and the Beacon Foundation will be held at the SaddleBrooke HOA One bocce ball courts.

To protect your privacy all documents are put into containers at the drop-off site. The containers are then locked and transported to the Beacon facility for shredding.

In addition to documents, the following items will be accepted for donation/recycling: Computers, laptops and servers; mouse, keyboard, cables, cords; DVD players, VHS players; speakers, stereo equipment; phones and cell phones; printers, fax machines; adding machines, calculators and batteries (alkaline and rechargeable).

These items will NOT be accepted for recycling: appliances, microwaves, computer monitors and televisions.

For each boxful of items you drop off for shredding or recycling, please bring $5 or five cans of food. All donations of cash or food will benefit the Tri-Community Food Bank and the Beacon Foundation.

For more information please contact Long Realty at 15250 N. Oracle Road, No. 110 or 520-665-4200.
