Residents can safely dispose of electronic waste and have personal and business documents shredded at the City’s popular free e-waste event from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on June 16. The event will be held in Parking Lot I outside the Rose Bowl Stadium near Brookside Park, 360 North Arroyo Boulevard.
Shredding trucks and e-waste collection sites will be arranged at different stations in Parking Lot I. Look for signs directing you to the event. Motorists and bicyclists are advised to use caution while traveling through the area.
E-waste items include computers, keyboards, printers, monitors, laptops, docking stations, scanners, shredders, fax machines, computer mice, telephones, televisions, flat screens, VCRs, DVD players, PDAs, cassette players, tape drives, stereos, and household batteries. Many of these products have parts that can be recycled.
Public Works is also helping residents prevent identity theft by providing free paper shredding during the event. The public can bring a maximum of three legal-size boxes for shredding. Sensitive documents such as receipts, checks, pre-approved credit applications, credit card statements, outdated tax returns, pre-printed envelopes, return address labels, and business cards are items that can be shredded.
Event participants will be required to show proof of Pasadena residency and the duration of the event is subject to truck capacity. The event is sponsored by the City’s Department of Public Works.
