EDCO and the City of El Cajon will be sponsoring a FREE Paper Shredding and E-Waste Collection Event on Saturday, May 15, 2021, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Wells Park located at 1153 E. Madison Avenue. This free event gives El Cajon residents an opportunity to dispose of personal documents and electronic waste safely.

Would you like to discard old bank statements and other personal records, but are concerned with identity theft? Bring up to two bankers boxes (10” x 12” x 15”) per household and have them shredded on-site. Unwanted electronics will also be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, and answering machines.

Please, no Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) material, household appliances, or trash. Such items will not be accepted at this event.

Free Mulch! Also available will be free mulch for El Cajon residents (while supplies last). This is a self-serve, self-loading, and self-haul service, so please bring your own cans/bags, gloves, and shovel—there is a limit of 3 cans/bags per vehicle. If you plan to haul your mulch in an open truck or trailer, please remember to bring a tarp to cover your material.
