Ready to Shred Recycling Day set for July 17

PELHAM – Residents will have the opportunity to safely and securely recycle certain electronic and paper items on Friday, July 17.

The Shelby County Chamber’s Existing Business and Industry Work Group will hold its fifth-annual Ready to Shred Recycling Day event from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Live Nation parking lot at the Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena.

The Chamber is hosting the event with Gone For Good Document Destruction and E-Waste Solutions, the Pelham Civic Complex and Live Nation.

A mobile truck will be on-site for document destruction, and a drop-off area will be available for e-waste items.

Both services are free to the public.

Acceptable e-waste items include: computers/laptops, cell phones/PDAs, DVD players/VCR, laptops, communications equipment, office machines, printers, stereos, servers/routers, flat screen TVs and monitors.

There will be a limit of four banker boxes of paper items, four lawn/leaf bags of acceptable recyclables and four medium plastic storage bins of acceptable recyclables.

Tubed TVs, tubed computer monitors, batteries and refrigerators cannot be accepted.

Those who come to the event will be required to wear a mask, and social distancing of at least 6 feet will be required.

Attendees are responsible for handling their recyclables.

Over the last four years, the event has resulted in more than 500 businesses and individuals bringing thousands of pounds of paper to be shredded, plus thousands of pounds of electronic waste to be recycled.
