Decatur shredding, styrofoam event to be held on Oct. 22


Decatur, GA — The city of Decatur Public Works Department will host its semi-annual paper shredding and styrofoam event from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 22.

Items can be dropped off at the public works building at 2635 Talley Street. The community can securely dispose of up to 10 boxes of sensitive household documents, according to an announcement from the city.

All staples and paper clips must be removed from documents to be recycled.

– Make sure foam has the “6” symbol on it

– Rinse and separate food service containers from other foam

– No straws, lids, tape or stickers

– No foam peanuts or insulation material
