ADA, Okla. -- The Chickasaw Nation ReUse Center will host a document shredding event open to the public at no charge 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Thursday, April 18.

A shredding truck will be on-site to immediately shred documents at 2205 N. Broadway. Individuals and businesses are welcome.

The ReUse Center also accepts:

The Chickasaw Nation hosts this event every year during the week of Earth Day. Earth Day is a worldwide event, first observed in 1970, which demonstrates support for environmental protection.

According to the Earth Day Network, more than 1 billion people participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. They support a number of environmental protection and awareness campaigns, including ending plastic pollution, reforesting locations across the globe, raising environmental and climate literacy, planting trees at schools, and informing and empowering individuals to manage their impact on the planet.

There are many different ways communities observe Earth Day. Some gather to collect recyclable materials and dispose of litter; others plant trees in their area. Co-workers might carpool, and households may use more energy efficient light bulbs and appliances.

The April 18 shredding event at the ReUse Center, which will result in the recycling of paper and other household items, is only one of many ways to celebrate Earth Day.

The Chickasaw Nation ReUse Center will also accept “white goods” April 22 through July 31. Items include large domestic electrical goods like refrigerators, freezers, air conditioning units, stoves, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers and hot water tanks.
