Recycle electronics and shred documents on May 21

The City of Richmond and Clean City Commission will be hosting a special electronics recycling collection event on Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 6807 Midlothian Turnpike (former Kmart store location). In addition, document shredding ( up to five boxes) will be provided. City residents can drop off their old 24 gallon green recycling bins for reuse in city schools since residents now have 95 gallon green recycling carts with a blue lid. There is a $10 fee to recycle old TVs and $10 fee to recycle CRTs. CRTs require special handling due to the leaded glass and mercury they contain. Pay by cash or check.
