Shredding Day and Recycling Event

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, the Orange Recycling Committee will hold another “Shredding Day” which will include Document Shredding AND Clothing, and Household Goods Collection, ALL at High Plains Community Center.

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.  Paper will be accepted from 9AM-12PM.

The Orange Community Women will be collecting clothing and household goods under the upper pavilion.  Soft items, including clothing, shoes, accessories, stuffed animals, pocketbooks, sheets, blankets, curtains, towels and other household textiles should be bagged in kitchen-size garbage bags.

Hard items, including toys, dishes, small appliances, sporting goods, household décor, DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes and knick-knacks should be boxed with books boxed separately.  The Orange Community Women will accept items from 9AM-11AM only.

Finally, the Buy Nothing Orange group will be under the pavilion, as well, where anyone can bring and/or take items.  This is an excellent way to release household items that may make it to a new home, or find some items that you can use at no cost.  This wonderful “re-use” event will be held from 9AM-11AM only.

Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, mattresses and box springs WILL NOT be collected at this event, though it is hoped that they will be included again during the spring.

WHEN and WHERE:  Saturday, October 7, 2023, at High Plains Community Center on Orange Center Road.
