The Tippecanoe Recycling and Solid Waste District and the Tippecanoe Partnership for Water Quality is expanding their bi-annual e-waste event to include paper shredding and medicine disposal!  We will be back at McCutcheon High School this year in the south parking lot.  Please enter the parking lot at the front of the school.

Details on E-waste Recycling: Tippecanoe County residents may bring in electric and electronic devices such as TVs, computers, laptops, vacuum cleaners, printers, etc. for recycling at no charge.  We will NOT accept items with refrigerant such as AC units, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, or freezers.

We will NOT accept large appliances such as washing machines or stoves.  Those can be recycled at Oscar Winski Scrap Metal at 2407 N 9th St. All attendees must show proof of Tippecanoe County residency to receive free service.  If you cannot show proof of Tippecanoe County residency, you will have to pay the regular fees for e-waste with Oscar Winski.

Details on paper shredding: A paper shredding truck will be on-site to accept up to two banker boxes of paper to shred and recycle from each car.  Just pull up, dump your box in the bin, and that's it!  Paper clips, staples, folders, and file tabs are A-OK!  Please remove binders and alligator clips.

Details on medicine disposal: The Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Department will also be here to accept any unused or expired medicines.  Over-the-counter and prescription (including controlled substances) are accepted.  All of your medicines will be destroyed and disposed of safely.  We will not take liquids, needles of any kind, insulin, or powders.

We will have volunteers on hand to unload your electronics.  Please have them packed in your vehicle in an easy-to-unload manner so that we can keep the line of cars moving.

This event is sponsored in part by the Central Indiana Better Business Bureau. Many thanks to them for supporting this event!
