Now is the perfect time to clean out those filing cabinets bursting with old documents that you don’t need anymore. Or maybe you have old bank statements and bill stubs piling up along with junk mail labeled with personal information. Whatever the case, don’t sweat it…SHRED IT!

The District is sponsoring a FREE Community Shred Day for all the residents in Cass County. This is an opportunity to securely shred documents containing personal and confidential information to prevent identity theft and fraud. There will be a mobile shredding truck on-site for you to watch as your records are destroyed.

The event will be April 28 from 2-5 p.m. at 518 High Street (the Recycling District Office/Warehouse). The procedure is very simple. Just load up all the documents in bags or boxes and bring it to the warehouse. The documents will be shredded within minutes. This service is for residents only, no businesses or municipalities.

The Tire Collection Program has returned. Starting April 4, 2016, Cass County residents can bring us tires for disposal by appointment. Just call the office and we’ll set up a time that works best.

Below is the new tire fee schedule:
Passenger Tires (Rim size 18” or less) $1/tire
Racing Tires (Wide) $2/tire
Commercial Tires (Semi, Bobcat/Fork truck) – $5
Tractor Tires $20/tire

I’m really excited to announce that the Recycling District Board has approved an Earth Week Proclamation. This year, instead of celebrating Earth Day, I have come up with events for the entire week. The purpose of these activities is to bring awareness to the health and cleanliness of our community. Once the proclamation has been signed, I’ll officially publish it in the media along with all the details. Keep an eye on our Facebook page (Cass County Recycling District) for the video of the reading and its official release.

Below is a sneak peek at the general focus of the activities for Earth Week:

Monday, April 18: “Yard Clean Up” Day
Tuesday, April 19: “Declutter Your Home” Day
Wednesday, April 20: “Car Pool” Day
Thursday, April 21: “Energy Saving” Day
Friday, April 22: “Awareness” Day

Pass along all of the upcoming events with friends and family so they can take advantage of these services. If you have any questions about our programs and services, contact me at 574-732-9253. As always, Stay Green!
