  • 286 Vehicles brought paper & there were 2 or 3 people who walked to the event with their recycling
    • AccuNW shred 53 large containers of paper (generally they limit at 50 bins)
  • 450 lbs of Batteries
  • 2 Large pallets of E-cycling
  • Books donated to Garden Home Community Library
  • Cartridges
  • Minimal amount of home goods donated to the Community Warehouse

We had some problems with shredder jamming due to the fact that people had inadvertently put non-shred items into their paper shredding containers.

These were the culprits:

  • Dog Bone
  • Sponge Brushes & Decoupage
  • Pen
  • Carabineer

So save the date we’ll be holding our 5th Annual Event next year on April 21, 2018….
