11th Annual Electronics Recycling Drive and 5th Annual Shredding Event April 15, 2017_copy


Residents (single-family homes, condos and apartments) and local business representatives were invited to participate in the 11th annual Electronics Recycling Drive (ERD), part of the Village Goes Green Initiative, on Saturday, April 14, 2018, from 8:30 am-1:30 pm.


For the fourth year the Village sponsored a document shredding event at the same time as the ERD. A crew and mobile shredding truck from Shred-it was stationed along Village Green Way next to Village Hall to offer secure shredding services for confidential documents. Shred-it's trucks contain cutting-edge proprietary paper shredding technology that safely process business or personal papers into confetti-sized pieces before being recycled.

The Electronic Recycling drive-through drop-off location was at the West Enid Drive on-street parking zone between the Village Hall parking lot and the Winn-Dixie building. The site is easy to spot with a tent and lift-gate truck belonging to EScrap, the Village vendor, between Village Green Way and Fernwood Road. The drop-off zone is designed for access from the east (i.e., from Crandon Boulevard or Village Green Way), and will be delineated with barricades and cones. For more information, please contact Mariana Dominguez-Hardie, Division of Public Works, at (305) 365-5504.

Participants will be able to drive through the collection area and drop-off acceptable items.  Please refer to the lists below of acceptable and non-acceptable items.
