Residents (single-family homes, condos and apartments) and local business representatives are invited to participate in the 13th annual Electronics Recycling Drive (ERD). For the seventh year the Village is sponsoring a document shredding event at the same time as the ERD. A crew and mobile shredding truck from Shred-it will be nearby (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 will be at the West Enid Drive on-street parking zone between the Village Hall parking lot and the Winn-Dixie building. You will see 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.
