Need a place to recycle confidential documents, old electronics, dead batteries, and gently used shoes? Then it’s time for a spring cleaning! During Lunch Truck Lineup on the Marine Parade Grounds, we'll collect these items for FREE paper shredding, FREE electronics recycling, and FREE battery disposle. This will also be the last day to drop-off gently used shoes for the Back On My Feet Shoe Drive.
Dating back to the 1800s, the biggest annual housecleaning took place in the spring because the winter left homes coated with layers of soot and grime. Lamps lit with whale oil or kerosene, were heated with coal and wood, so you can imagine the mess left behind. A proper cleaning required opening windows to let the soot out, which could only be done during warmer weather.
Our take on a proper spring cleaning is unloading confidential documents, recycling electronics, and disposing of dead batteries!
Some recyclable electronics include: TVs, Dehumidifiers, Peripherals, Computers, Typewriters, Mice, Telephones, Small Appliances, Microwaves, Fax Machines, Cameras, Keyboards, Cell Phones, Printers, Calculators, and Air Conditioners!
