Free e-waste, shredding event set for Saturday in Pasadena

Pasadena residents can safely get rid of broken or unwanted electronics at a free e-waste event, the city announced.

Paper shredding to help curb identity theft will also be available at the event, which is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Parking Lot I outside the Rose Bowl Stadium near Brookside Park, 360 N. Arroyo Blvd.

According to the city, electronic 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 and stereos. Residents can also bring household batteries, fluorescent light bulbs and LED light bulbs for safe disposal.

“These items should never be disposed of in your trash or recycling containers,” city officials said in a statement.

The event, organized by the Pasadena Public Works Department also aims to help help prevent identity theft with free paper shredding, officials said. City residents can bring as many as three legal-size boxes for shredding. Items acceptable for shredding include sensitive documents such as receipts, checks, pre-approved credit applications, credit card statements, outdated tax returns, pre-printed envelopes, return address labels and business cards.

For safety reasons only cars may enter the recycling event — walk-ups aren’t permitted — and members of the public who attend the e-waste and shredding event must show proof of Pasadena residency, officials said. The event’s duration is subject to truck capacity, so it may end before 3 p.m.
