Free E-Waste and Shred Collection Event June 26

E-Waste

Bring your electronic waste and old documents to the City of Benbrook’s E-waste and Shred Collection Event on Saturday, June 26, at Dutch Branch Park from 8 a.m. to noon, or until the trucks are full

 

This event is FREE to Benbrook residents, but proof of residency is required (e.g., driver’s license or utility bill). Crews will be available to direct traffic and to assist in unloading items. 

 

The drop-off site is located at Dutch Branch Park’s back parking lot behind the Benbrook Lighted Par 3 and the Benbrook Community Center/YMCA (1899 Winscott Road). Please follow the signs along Winscott Road, turn onto Beach Road, and then proceed toward the back parking lot. Please note that the line usually forms early.

 

Electronic Waste

 

For electronic waste, generally speaking, if it can be plugged in, it can be recycled. Common electrical items that can be accepted include:

 

Computers

Fax machines

Washers

Vacuums 

Refrigerators 

Printers 

Dryers 

Microwave ovens

Dishwashers

Telephones 

Copiers

Gaming Systems

 

Computer hard drives will be destroyed by a third party. Please note, CRT devices (older televisions and other electronics with glass tubing) and household hazardous waste are not accepted at this event.

 

Document Shredding 

 

For document shredding, please limit paper volume to a reasonable household amount (up to 4 banker boxes); large amounts of business documents will not be accepted. Paper items must be dry, and boxes of documents cannot contain other items that might clog the shredder, such as CDs, paper clips, credit cards, and other plastic materials.
