Berkley to Host Community Electronics Recycling and Shredding Event on May 20

The City of Berkley, in partnership with SOCRRA, will offer a spring community electronics recycling and shredding event on Saturday, May 20.

Residents can drop off electronics such as TVs, computers, cell phones and DVD players as well as Styrofoam™, scrap metal and cardboard for recycling from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Berkley Parks and Recreation, 2400 Robina Ave. A paper shredder also will be on-site for residents to use. Other accepted materials include paper, glass bottles and jars, plastic containers and metal cans.

“The City of Berkley’s recycling event is a great opportunity for residents to properly  dispose of old electronic items and shred sensitive documents as part of their spring-cleaning efforts,” said Shawn Young, Department of Public Works director. “We encourage residents to join us May 20 for this free event and help us continue to be good stewards of our environment.”

The event is available to City of Berkley residents only. Berkley Public Works and SOCRRA staff will be on-site to help direct residents during the event.

The following items will not be accepted during the event: large appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers and ranges, household hazardous waste such as cleaning products and solvents, fertilizer, motor oil and paint as well as tires, brush and general refuse.
