Free Community Disposal Event At COC Saturday

shredded-paperWith spring comes that urge to clean our closets, offices and bathrooms. The City of Santa Clarita and the LA County Sheriff’s Department is holding a community shredding, e-waste and prescription drug disposal event that will take much of the resulting refuse off your hands in a safe manner.


The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 21, on the Valencia campus of College of the Canyons’ parking lot 8 (on the north side of the stadium). Residents are encouraged to bring personal papers, electronic items and unwanted pharmaceuticals for safe and secure disposal.

Residents can bring up to five boxes (average size 11”x 12” x 15”) of personal papers to be shredded; staples and paper clips need not be removed. Paper in plastic bags will be accepted, as long as the papers can be removed from the car by hand.

Also being accepted are empty binders, unwanted credit cards and computer disks. Participants will be given a Certificate of Destruction. All paper disposal is being handled by Confidential Data Destruction Company, a licensed and bonded document disposal firm.

Most electronic items will also be accepted, including computers and equipment: computers, laptops, keyboards, printers, scanners, cables and computer mice. Home entertainment items, such as TV sets, computer monitors and flat screens will be accepted, as will cell phones and PDAs.

No appliances, batteries, household hazardous waste or light bulbs will be accepted.

This roundup is also an opportunity to safely dispose of drugs, both prescription and over the counter types. Wastewater treatment systems cannot remove all medicine from the water system, so flushing old medications down the toilet is discouraged. In addition, expired prescription or OTC medications can be stolen or abused by others. This collection event offers a way for people to rid themselves of prescription, OTC and veterinary medicines in the least harmful way.

One caveat: syringes and medical equipment cannot be accepted at this disposal event.

The event is free and open to the public.
