Shred, eRecycle, & Book Drive 2024

Join us! Secure Shred, Electronics Recycling, and Book Drive

Are there sensitive documents piling up in your file cabinets? Are old cell phones and computers collecting dust in the garage?

Our partners from Shred-it® and Green Century Electronics Recycling will be on-site next month to help you safely and securely destroy these items. New this year: we will be accepting Styrofoam!

And if you can, bring a book for donation to the SMART Reading Program. We are collecting gently used or new picture and board books appropriate for babies through elementary school students.

Enjoy complimentary coffee and breakfast burritos from Master Taco, one of Beaverton’s most popular taco trucks. We look forward to seeing you!
