The Richland County Solid Waste Department is helping citizens chunk unwanted junk by hosting a special electronic recycling and document shredding event.
The event is open to all Richland County residents. The following items will be accepted: tires, computers, televisions, household electronics, microwave ovens, scrap metal and paper documents for shredding.
The event is being held on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Zion Mill Creek Baptist Church. The church is located at 97 Mill Creek Parkway Blvd.
Residents also will be able to “Make the Switch” – exchange regular household bulbs for energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs. The limit is eight per person.
