The City of West Hollywood will host a free document and electronic waste collection event for residents and businesses. Community members are invited to bring confidential files and unwanted electronics, including hard drives, for shredding and recycling.
E-waste will be handled by certified electronics recycler, Homeboy Recycling, in a way that protects the planet and keeps data safe while creating jobs for people in the region facing serious barriers to employment. All electronics are accepted, with the exception of hazardous materials, large appliances, thermostats, light bulbs, and batteries.
The free document and hard drive shredding and electronic waste collection event will take place on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center employee parking lot, located at 355 N. San Vicente Boulevard.
Document shredding as well as hard drive shredding will be done on-site, so participants can watch their documents and hard drives being destroyed.
