Getting rid of hazardous items and paper shredding options
Sometimes we don't get rid of things because we aren't sure where to take them. If you live in
Williamson County, each Tuesday from 8:30 - 3:00 you can have papers shredded for free. You can bring as much as you want and they will do it in front of you if you'd like to wait. You need to remove paper clips and binder clips and the like but it's okay to leave papers stapled. It's at 420 Century Court in Franklin. Right across the street (417 Century Court) is a BOPAE site where you can unload batteries, oil, paint, anti-freeze and electronic waste. They are also now accepting fluorescent tubes.
If you live in
you can click
for information from the Nashville area recycling service providers which gives a list of where to dispose of a large variety of odd items, from tires to old mattresses. I couldn't find a regular free outlet for shredding in Davidson County, but if you have a bunch of papers that need shredding, please give me a call and I will help you to dispose of them.
If you have any old electronic items such as computer monitors, printers, hard drives, phones, etc. you can take them to any Best Buy store and they will take them off your hands for free. They don't take any appliances (even small ones like toaster) but will take electronics and old t.v.'s up to 32 inches in size.
