Safely discard expired prescription medications; donate gently used clothing and household items, non-perishable food and personal hygiene items, bicycles, books; e-cycle computers, laptops and other electronics; and shred personal documents.

It’s fast, and it’s free.

Shred personal, sensitive or financial documents to protect against identity theft at the LeMay Mobile Shredding Truck, sponsored by O Bee Credit Union.
