On Saturday, April 23 Eggleston provided Shredding and Recycling services for the Annual City of Virginia Beach Earth Day event. The event was held at Mount trashmore Park.

Attendees were able explore ways to make our world a better place through educational exhibits and activities. Attendees brought old electronics, outdated child safety seats, documents to be shredded, old car batteries, leftover paint and other hazardous household waste to the AAA recycling zone. They shopped at the green market, enjoyed live music and children’s activities!

An estimated 8000 people attended the event!

Eggleston secured and shred over 4,600 pounds of material at our secure facility located on Military Highway. The material was later pulverized and recycled.
