ACE Recycling is proud to partner with Rev Residential Brokerage for a second electronic waste and shredding event. We are excited to add a canned food drive at this event to benefit our community. The event will is at 4700 S. Mill Ave, Tempe, AZ 85282, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Saturday, October 22nd.
This event is an excellent opportunity to clean out those old electronics taking up space in your house. In addition to cleaning out your electronics, you can bring unlimited boxes of paper to be shredded on-site in partnership with Shred-It. All items will be processed in an environmentally responsible way.
Canned Food Drive
As the Holiday season approaches, Rev Residential and its partners are working with The Society of St. Vincent de Paul-Saint Benedict Parish to feed those in need. We invite you to make a canned food donation when dropping off your electronic waste and shreddable paper. Your donation will help stock the shelves of over 80 community food pantries in central and northern Arizona. Canned protein sources like tuna, chicken, and soups are especially needed year-round. We appreciate your help in supporting our community.
Join the Circular Economy
Electronic Waste Drive
As always, your electronic waste will be processed securely and responsibly. All electronic data will be processed by ACE Recycling using the Nation Institute of Standards and Technology’s recommended data erasure standards. From there, ACE Recycling works to keep working materials in circulation. Working in a circular waste model means repairing and upgrading electronics allows ACE Recycling to provide our community with affordable technology. Electronics that are unable to be repaired or upgraded are recycled. Our partners then extract the raw materials from those components. Using recycled raw materials to create new devices reduces the need to pull more from the Earth. For a complete list of accepted electronics, please visit our website.
Rest assured, your shredded documents will also be part of the circular economy. Shred-It supports the circular waste model as well. Their website states, “Once documents are securely shredded, Shred-it sends the confetti-sized pieces for recycling. This shows that environmental responsibility and document security can go hand-in-hand. Every ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 KWs of energy, and 7,000 gallons of water.” Not sure which documents to shred and which to keep? Forbes outlines how long you should keep certain documents. The general rule of thumb is to keep documents for a year, except for tax information, which you should be keep for seven years.

Rev Residential Founder Sally Martinez, “When I started Rev Residential, I wanted to make sure that as a company we give back to the community somehow, as a sign of gratitude for business that is brought to us. Plus, I am passionate about contributing to a cleaner environment in any way I can. I decided that I could merge those two passions and goals by sponsoring a bi-annual shred event. We hold one event in April around Earth Day and the other in October. Jose Rodriguez, business development manager at Old Republic Title—Biltmore, and Jake Connors, Broker, Goosehead Insurance, collaborate with us. Between the three entities, we cover the cost of shredding and now e-waste recycling for FREE to anyone that shows up.”
Partnering for Planet and Community
As a small, family-run, locally owned business, ACE Recycling believes in fostering relationships with our community and other small businesses within that community. We are proud to work with other companies that uphold our values. We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with Rev Residential, Shred-it, Jake Connors at Goosehead Insurance, and Jose Rodriguez at Old Republic Title-Biltmore to benefit the community and the environment. As a former educator, I genuinely believe you can take the educator out of the classroom, but you cannot take the compassion and commitment to service out of their heart. This collaboration is a testament to that.
