Wheaton Recycling Event

April 6, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

  • Strict 3 box limit for documents (boxes about the size of standard copier paper/banker boxes).
  • Must remove binders, rubber bands, plastic page protectors, plastic bags, plastic file tabs, CDs and other hard items (they are fire hazard for shred truck!)
    • Staples and Paper Clips do not need to be removed.

Document shredding trucks will shred documents on-site as you drop them off.

New in 2019 the Wheaton Document Shredding event is expanding to collect more items:
  • Syringes: Collect your household-generated medical sharps (needles, syringes, lancets etc) in a thick plastic container such as a detergent bottle. Secure the lid with tape, label as “sharps” and bring to the Wheaton event for safe disposal. Offered in partnership with the DuPage County Sheriff.

Examples of good containers for collecting sharps before disposal.

  • Mercury Thermometers, Thermostats, and Barometers
  • Paint (fee-based): Recycle your old latex or oil-based paint (no stains or finishes). Services provided by ePaint Recycling.
