Anyone with confidential documents they want to dispose of can do so for free this Saturday thanks to Recycling Services of America.

The RSA will offer free confidential document destruction from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday as part of the Great American Cleanup, which is sponsored by Keep Alachua County Beautiful, according to a news release.

People can shred their documents at Albert “Ray” Massey Park, 1001 NW 34th Street.

In addition to documents, the RSA will also accept items such as printer cartridges, car batteries, tires, light bulbs and cardboard boxes for safe disposal or recycling.

The Alachua County Environmental Protection Department will be there to take hazardous materials like electronics, medications, paints, household cleaners and motor oil off residents’ hands as well. Household hazardous waste will be accepted for free, according to the news release.

Business waste, however, is only accepted through a fee-based program and must be taken to the Alachua County Hazardous Waste Collection Center at 5125 NE 63rd Ave.

Contact Recycling Services of America at 352-379-5797 for more information on Saturday’s document-shredding event.
