Okay. I admit it. I’m lazy and I really hate recycling. I occasionally yearn for that carefree time when I could just toss my trash with abandon into the garbage can and not think about it. But those days are gone forever and now I compost, sort my paper and plastic and even worry about throwing light-bulbs away. So I was happy to see the West Hollywood event for “Free Document Shredding and Electronic Waste Collection” this Saturday, November 13th.
It’s from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot of West Hollywood City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard. You can unload televisions, laptops, DVD players, fax machines, telephones, radios, monitors, cell phones, stereos, keyboards, microwaves, printers, computers, VCR players, scanners, whew! and more. And by going, you can let go of all that guilt for polluting the environment when you dump stuff like that in the trash.
Document shredding is “secure” which means that the shredding is done at the collection site. You can even watch your stuff get shredded if you like that sort of thing!
