The City invites Placentia residents and businesses to participate in a free community Shredding & E-Waste Recycling Event on Saturday, October 15th, from 8:00am to 12:00pm at the Placentia Civic Center (401 East Chapman Avenue).
Shredding documents can help prevent fraud and identity theft. Paper Depot will be present to destroy confidential documents on-site. Limit four (4) banker box-size containers from each household or business located in Placentia. Place items in the trunk for easy access. If material is in 3-ring binder, please remove before shredding.
