The City invites Placentia residents and businesses to participate in a free community Shredding & E-Waste Recycling Event on Saturday, September 30th, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Placentia Civic Center (401 East Chapman Avenue).
Shredding documents can help prevent fraud and identity theft. Paper Depot will be present to destroy confidential copies on-site. Limit six (6) banker box-size containers from each household or business located in Placentia. Please place items in the trunk for easy access. If the material is in a 3-ring binder, please remove it before shredding. (Paper clips, staples, rubber bands, or file folders do not need to be separated as the shredding process can easily destroy them.)
