Shredding Day and Recycling Event

On Saturday, October 8, 2022, the Orange Recycling Committee will hold another “Shredding Day” which will include Document Shredding AND Mattresses & Box Springs Collection AND Clothing, and Household Goods Collection, ALL at High Plains Community Center from 9AM to12PM.

Paper and personal document shredding will be conducted by Orange business Affordable Solutions, LLC, and is for residential files only and is not intended for businesses.  This service is generously funded by the Rotary Club of Orange.  Residents may show their appreciation by donating to the Orange Rotary Scholarship Fund, where Rotarians will be on hand to collect donations.

Mattresses and box springs will again be collected by the Mattress Recycling Council’s “Bye Bye Mattress” team.  Residents may bring items to the event and workers will load them into the collection truck.  Alternatively, volunteers from the Orange Lions Club will again pick up items from residential homes, for a donation of $10 per item.  Anyone interested in this service should contact Ken Lenz at 203-795-3906.  Items must be outside and dry or in a garage for easy access, as volunteers will not enter homes.

The Orange Community Women will be collecting clothing and household goods under the upper pavilion.  Clothing, shoes, accessories, sheets, blankets, towels, stuffed animals, and other household textiles should be bagged.  Toys, dishes, small appliances, sporting goods, household décor, DVDs, CDs, tapes, and knick-knacks should be boxed with books boxed separately.
