Wheaton Recycling Event
April 6 @ 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.
- 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.
