Event Gives Citizens an Opportunity to Safely Dispose of Confidential Documents and Responsibly Recycle Computers And Other Electronics.
Durham, NC – North Carolina laws are stringent regarding what is allowed in landfills across the state. As of this past July, televisions and computer equipment were banned from disposal in North Carolina’s landfills, as a result of a law passed last year by the General Assembly.
In response to the recent disposal ban on electronics, the Durham County General Services Department has scheduled a Pre-Holiday Shredding and E-Waste Recycling Event for Durham County residents and businesses to safely dispose of confidential documents and responsibly recycle electronics.
The collection event, co-sponsored with Creative Recycling Systems, Inc., and Orange Recycling Services’ division of Document Security Services will be held from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m., on Saturday, December 10, 2011, at the Durham County Memorial Stadium located at 402 Stadium Drive in Durham.
Almost all electronic devices with a cord are accepted, including:
Computers, laptops, keyboards, mouse, printers, monitors, speakers, copiers, scanners, circuit boards, hard drives, computer parts, etc.
Televisions, stereo equipment, tape players, receivers, amplifiers, and record players
Kitchen electronics, such as microwaves, mixers, blenders, choppers, etc.
Telephones, cell phones, and fax machines
Hair dryers, curling irons, alarm clocks, and vacuum cleaners
Power tools, cordless tools, etc.
Electronic toys, such as keyboards and video game systems
Free confidential document shredding will also be available. Items not acceptable for shredding include metal ringed binders, plastic notebooks, plastic binders, floppy disks, compact disks, digital video disks or any non-paper items that do not tear.
“Our primary goal in sponsoring this event prior to the Holiday Season is to help protect our citizens from identity theft and protect our environment from the impact of harmful components contained in electronics like mercury, lead and cadmium,” said Brian Haynesworth, Solid Waste Program Manager for the Durham County General Services Department.
Residents are discouraged from bringing large appliances, refrigerators, air conditioners, or any other appliances that contain Freon to the E-Waste Recycling Event.
