The Chickasaw Nation will host a document shredding event April 22 at the Chickasaw Nation ReUse Center, located at 2205 North Broadway.
A shredding truck will be onsite from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until full) to immediately shred documents for recycling. This event is free and open to the public with businesses welcome.
The ReUse Center is also accepting new and gently used household items and building materials for redistribution to the community.
The ReUse Center provides innovative, practical ways to recycle household and construction goods.
Open to public, the ReUse Center accepts furniture, appliances, electronics, clothing, household and kitchen items, paint, cleaning products and building materials.
Patrons may take what they need from the ReUse Center, free of charge.
Private companies and individuals are encouraged to drop off reusable items and clothing that would otherwise head to the landfill.
Opened in 2010, the tribal ReUse Center has diverted more than 261 tons of usable household goods from landfills.
The ReUse Center partners with several organizations, including state and local recycling groups, the Family Crisis Center of Ada, and other charitable organizations throughout the state.
Excess inventory is donated to a Norman, Okla. charity and distributed in the Oklahoma City metro area, or sent to impoverished nations that have a need for household items and clothing.
The Chickasaw Nation Reuse Center was one of the first of its kind in Oklahoma and the second in the nation funded by a Native American tribe.
Since opening, it has received recognition for its community efforts by the State of Oklahoma, including the state-sponsored “Keep Oklahoma Beautiful” award in 2010.
The Chickasaw Nation ReUse Center is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is located at 2205 North Broadway.
