WHEN: Events are scheduled on Sundays so that we are not competing with the traffic of our own equipment and the public bringing in trash and recyclable materials. Due to concerns about the spread of corona virus and COVID-19, we have cancelled our June event.

During our shred events, volunteers for the Western Disposal & Associates Foundation will be on hand collecting donations. This Foundation was established to provide resources to local children in need, assisting them in participating more fully and equitably in activities that enrich and improve their lives. Your spare change can change lives!
