Shred-a-thon 2021

The Town of Oro Valley, in partnership with AARP, will hold a free document shredding event on Saturday, Dec. 18 at Naranja Park from 8 a.m. until noon (or until trucks reach capacity).

Residents can bring up to five medium-sized boxes that will be shredded on-site. Shredding confidential documents helps fight identity theft. For questions related to this shredding event, please contact Constituent Services Coordinator, Jessica Hynd at or 520-229-4711.

Christmas tree recycling

The Town of Oro Valley is once again partnering with the Kiwanis Club to host the annual Christmas tree recycling program.

Residents can recycle real Christmas trees at Naranja Park starting Dec. 26 through Jan. 16, 2022. Before drop-off, everything needs to be removed from the tree, including the stand, ornaments, lights and any type of wire or tinsel. Recycled trees will be mulched and used for composting. For questions related to tree recycling, please contact the Public Works Department at 520-229-5070 or 520-229-4850.
