BURLINGTON COUNTY ANNOUNCES RECYCLING & SHREDDING EVENT MAY 5 | cnbnews

 Shred Documents and Recycle Computers & TVs

 

 

Burlington County Freeholders will hold a recycling and shredding event on Sunday, May 5, 2013 from 9 am to 1 pm. The event will be held at the Robert C. Shinn Recycling Center, 130 Hancock Lane in Westampton.

 

Burlington County residents will have the opportunity to shred confidential documents and safely dispose of computers and TVs.

 

Nearly 4,612 residents participated in the previous 6 events, bringing in more than 122,000 pounds of documents and disposing of 169,000 pounds of “E-waste.”

 

Best of all, residents do not even have to leave their cars. Volunteers are on hand to unload the recyclables.

 

Residents are urged to bring only “confidential” documents for shredding, such as bank and credit card statements, tax returns, papers with account numbers or social security numbers. They will be shredded on-site. They should not bring already-shredded paper, binders, plastic folders, computer disks or plastic credit cards. Up to four bags or boxes per household will be accepted.

 

In addition to TVs and computers, accepted E-waste includes laptops, monitors, computer keyboards, mice/cables, printers, desktop copiers, scanners, fax machines, VCR/DVD/MP3 players, cell phones, game consoles and rechargeable batteries.

 

This event is for Burlington County residents only. ID is required. No businesses, please. For more information call 609-499-1001 or email recycle@co.burlington.nj.us
