Paper Shredding and E-Waste Collection- Culver City Partners with Homeboy Industries

Homeboy Recycling will provide Culver City with several convenient electronics recycling services, including hosting quarterly drive-through collection events for the public.

HomeBoy is continuing the Quarterly E-waste and Paper Shredding events for the City of Culver City on the First Saturday of the month each quarter, 9am – 1pm. These events will be held at Syd Kronenthal Park at 3459 McManus, Culver City on both May 7, 2022 and August 6, 2022

Chris Zwicke, CEO of Homeboy Electronics Recycling, stresses the importance of community partnerships. “We look at the ‘problem’ of e-waste as an opportunity to create quality jobs for people who really need them. Not only do we make sure to keep electronics out of landfills, where toxic materials can pollute our soil, water, and air, but we also refurbish computers and other electronics, increasing the supply of affordable IT equipment in our community. This partnership between Homeboy and Culver City makes a truly positive local impact.”

HOMEBOY ELECTRONICS RECYCLING is an R2 certified social enterprise offering nationwide service for the proper disposal and management of IT assets. Each year we refurbish thousands of computers and divert millions of pounds of electronics away from the landfill while creating jobs for people facing systemic barriers to employment.

HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES, for over 30 years, is the largest gang rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world.

For more information on this event, call Public Works Environmental Programs and Operations Customer Service at (310) 253-6400, Monday thru Friday 8am-3pm.
