Tanque Verde Lutheran Church and Arizona AARP are hosting a Paper Shredding and Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, Oct. 23, in the church parking lot at 8625 E. Tanque Verde Road.

Each car may drop off up to five medium-size boxes of paper for shredding. All electronic devices except CRT televisions and monitors will be accepted for recycling, with computer hard drives destroyed on site. For a full list of items that will be accepted for recycling, visit

The event will run from 8 a.m. to noon or until the collection trucks are full. It is free and open to all, but participants are asked to donate canned goods for the east-side church’s food pantry.

Drivers should enter via the east driveway onto the church campus and follow the signs.

For questions, call the church office at 520-749-1606 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
