Have a pile of computers taking up space in your house? Maybe you have some other desktop electronics you have been concerned about - not wanting them to end up in a landfill. Or in the wrong hands.

Saturday's Shred Day (October 15, 2016) at the Omni Community Credit Union branch on Capital Avenue south of Beckley Road in Battle Creek will not only provide a chance to shred unwanted documents with sensitive information, you can also hand over desktop electronics for safe recycling.

Susie Franklin-Behnke with the Franklin Iron and Metal Company tells WBCK her firm now includes scrapping of desktop electronics. Franklin will be present during Shred Day from 10 a.m. to noon.

There is no charge to bring electronics (or up to two boxes of paper for shredding) for recycling. However, organizers request that folks bring a monetary or non-perishable food donation for the Food Bank of South Central Michigan.
