Eco-friendly citizens rejoice! It’s the one day a year when Fort Worth residents can have items shredded, recycled and donated for free.
Fort Worth celebrates America Recycles Day by hosting Shred Day on Saturday, Nov. 4.
In past years, approximately 1,200 – 1,500 vehicles have driven through the parking lot of LaGrave Field unloading paper that needs to be shredded, discarding tires, electronics or even furniture.
This year’s event will be held rain or shine, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4, at La Grave Field, located at 301 N.E. Sixth St.
The event is sponsored by the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, Waste Management, Goodwill, and Better Business Bureau of Greater Tarrant County.
