Councilmember Al Austin and the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association are joining together to host the annual E-Waste Drive and Shred Fest this Saturday, March 2nd.

The event will take place at Scherer Park, at the corner of Atlantic and Del Amo, in front of the North Division Police Station. Shredding documents will be taken from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, and e-waste will be collected from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

With the rise in identity theft, the Shred Fest is a good opportunity to safely dispose of old personal records and documents. A local company, Future Shredding, Inc., will destroy the documents on site, and then recycle the paper shreds.

The first five boxes per vehicle are free, and it is only $5 for each additional box.

In addition, residents can properly dispose of electronic waste, such as old computers, monitors, televisions, plasma screens, DVD players and other electronics, for proper disposal. Proceeds from the donated items will benefit the Expo Arts Center Fund, to support its maintenance and operations.

No batteries, fluorescent tubes or household hazardous waste will be accepted.

For more information, call Councilmember Austin’s office at (562) 570-6685, or email district8@longbeach.gov .
