It’s the one day a year where Fort Worth residents can have items shredded, recycled and donated all for free. Fort Worth celebrates America Recycles Day by hosting Shred Day on Nov. 4. The event will be held rain or shine, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at La Grave Field, 301 N.E. Sixth St.
Last year, residents recycled 58,300 pounds of paper at this event.
Residents of Fort Worth and unincorporated Tarrant County, along with members of the Better Business Bureau of Greater Tarrant County can bring up to five boxes of personal documents to be securely shredded by Tarrant County. (Boxes should weigh no more than 40 pounds each.)
Other items that can be dropped off:
- Electronics (computers, televisions and small appliances).
- Household items such as furniture and clothing. No mattresses or large appliances.
- No business waste.
The event is sponsored by the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Waste Management, Goodwill and Better Business Bureau of Greater Tarrant County.
