Electronics Collection & Document Shredding Event

In celebration of Earth Day, Environmental Waste Services will host an electronics collection and paper shredding event from 9 a.m. to noon April 26. The event will be held in the parking lot north of the Curtis Culwell Center, 4999 Naaman Forest Blvd. (across the street from the main parking lot).

This collection is open to Garland residents to drop off their home electronics, including, but not limited to: TVs, computers, monitors, printers, cell phones, microwaves and batteries. Visit for a comprehensive list of acceptable items. Documents also will be shredded onsite at the event, with a limit of four file boxes of documents per vehicle.

“This event provides a great opportunity to reclaim your storage space and safely dispose of electronics and sensitive documents,” said Glenna Brown, EWS programs manager.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct traffic and help unload vehicles. For more information, go to or call 972-205-3500.
