Shredding Day: Saturday, May 7th, 10 am – 2 pm

Location: Cornforth Campbell parking lot at the intersection of East Main and 3rd St. SE, downtown Puyallup.

The City will accept up to six large bags of documents per household for shredding. All shredding will be done on site so you can be assured that no sensitive documents will be transported in an unshredded condition.

Recycling Electronics

If you have televisions, monitors, computers or related equipment you would like to recycle, you may do so at an “E-Cycle” drop-off site. These sites accept certain electronics year-round and free of charge from households, small businesses, schools and charitable organizations.

To find an E-Cycle drop-off site near you, call 1800RECYCLE (1-800-732-9253) 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, or use the search function on the recycle database provided by the Washington State Department of Ecology. The recycle database can be found at: http://www.ecy.wa.gov/.
