Keep Opelika Beautiful will host a free Recycle & Shred Day on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020. The event will be from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Northside Recycle Center located at 600 8th Ave. This is the site of the former fire station and is one block from the Opelika Municipal Park.

All shredding for this event will be done on site. Paper clips and staples do not have to be taken out, but paper will need to be removed from binders. There is a 10-box limit. This event is only open to residents of Lee County. No documents from businesses will be accepted for shredding. Attendees are asked to remain in their vehicles and allow volunteers to unload documents due to coronavirus restrictions.

Other items will be accepted at the Northside Recycle Center including electronics, aluminum cans, cardboard, newspaper, plastic and steel cans. This recycling center is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
