ARDMORE, Okla. -- The city of Ardmore was ‘going green’ Thursday in one of the first events of its kind in Carter County.
At the Citizens National Bank on Thursday, residents were able to bring by unwanted materials like old computers, cell phones, magazines, clothes, and even important bank documents and other items you might want shredded for privacy.
Officials at the event had a mobile shredder and shredded documents free of charge.
There was a steady stream of cars all morning of people dropping off their unwanted goods and doing their part to save the environment.
"It can be used by someone else. You can always get a good deal instead of throwing it away, just take it to the store and somebody else can use it and make good use of it," participant Gerald Lawson said.
Organizers say if you missed Thursday’s event, they will have another opportunity in the coming weeks.
