The City of Killeen will hold a free Document Shred Day and Tire Disposal Day this Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9a.m. – 1p.m.
The event will be held at the Lions Club Park Aquatics Center parking lot. This service is open to Killeen residents only and proof of residency is required. There is a limit of four tires per customer.
There are many benefits to shredding documents, including protecting sensitive or private information that contains account or personal details. Citizens are encouraged to destroy items properly in order to protect their customers and businesses, reduce safety hazards, comply with federal privacy laws, improve document security and ensure responsible recycling.
There also benefits to recycling old tires. Unused tires in a yard can store rainwater, which attracts unwanted pests. A recycled tire can be turned into fuel, used in asphalt, playground equipment and more.
