Paper Shredding and E-Waste Recycling
The City holds four shred days where residents can bring 2 banker's boxes of documents for shredding as well as electronic waste for recycling (computers, TVs, cell phones, printers, etc.no stereo speakers or vacuum cleaners). Hard drives must be removed from the computer if you would like it shredded.
Rocky Mountain Document Destruction's state of the art hammer-mill shredder can shred hardback books, spiral notebooks, paper clips/clamps, and rubber bands that may be intermixed with your documents that need to be shredded. Please refrain from putting cardboard, plastic bags, 3-ring binders, hard drives, CDs and plastic material into the bins for shredding.
