Fayetteville residents may participate in a free document shredding service this weekend.

Free shredding will be offered at the city’s Solid Waste & Recycling Facility, 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road, on Saturday Oct. 6 during the second of four bulky waste cleanups scheduled for this fall in Fayetteville.

City crews will also accept bulky items, such as old appliances and things too large to fit into a residential trash bin, from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the recycling facility, and at Root Elementary School, 1529 E. Mission Blvd.

Participants are asked to bring a copy of their most recent water bill to verify residency.

Electronic waste, such as TV’s and computers, will not be accepted. Those items may be dropped off at the Washington County Household Hazardous Waste facility, 2615 Brink Drive, during normal operating hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For more information about the cleanup, call Brian Pugh, waste reduction coordinator, at 479-718-7685.
