The City of St. Augustine Public Works Department is coordinating a one-day Community Recycle Event on Friday, April 26, 2019. This event is being held in observance of Earth Day 2019 and in conjunction with the City’s focus on diverting recyclable items away from the landfill.

Along with electronics and cooking oil, there will also be paper shredding (document destruction). Residents may bring up to 5 boxes each, to participate in this event. There is no need to worry about removing any staples, paperclips or folders.

To ensure compliance, a certified on-site mobile shredding truck will be used; which is a box truck with an industrial-size paper shredder mounted inside. The truck has storage space for the shredded materials, which will later be baled into mixed paper and pulped for new paper products.  NO CDs or DVDs.

Participants are encouraged to properly dispose of used cooking oil, such as vegetable oil, peanut oil, canola oil, etc., as well as drop-off outdated and broken “E-waste” (electronic devices) such as computers, printers, laptops, and cell phones – NO HAZARDOUS WASTE OR TVs. Refer to the complete list below of electronic devices to bring for recycling.
