TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - This Saturday, August 9, residents will have a chance to get rid of their old electronics and documents.  

The Ward Four Tucson City Council office is hosting a shredding and electronics recycling event, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Ward Four office (8123 E. Poinciana Dr.) near Irvington and Pantano.  


Proceeds from the metal recycling (provided by Desert Metals Recycling) will benefit Tucson Clean & Beautiful. Paper shredding from Shred It will benefit the DM-50, a nonprofit, volunteer service organization that supports and funds initiatives to improve the quality of life for the personnel at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. 

Workers will be accepting things like computers, printers, cell phones, stereo equipment, copiers and fax machines.  

The event is free, but there is a $5 charge for computer monitors and anything beyond one box of paper.
