Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce invites the public to participate in a Community Shred & E-Waste Drop-Off Day on Tuesday, April 17, from 12:30 to 4 p.m. in the parking lot at 90 E. Wilson Bridge Road, Worthington.
Shred Day offers an opportunity for safe disposal of both sensitive documents and used electronic devices. As a "cost" for the services, donations will be accepted for Chamber-sponsored scholarships.
Royal Document Destruction, a certified AAA National Association of Information Destruction (NAID®) provider, will collect sensitive documents at the event for shredding.
Businesses and residents can clear out old tax files or sensitive information, protect against identify theft, help the environment and support Chamber initiatives.
The event will feature a drive-up, drop-off format; Chamber volunteers will remove boxes from vehicles and carry them to the collection truck (returning the boxes or recycling them as desired). Each box should be a size that a person of average strength can lift and carry. To prevent sensitive documents from spilling out and blowing away, open boxes or bags are not accepted.
This event also offers an opportunity to discard computer monitors, laptops, printers, cell phones or chargers, which will be recycled in an environmentally friendly way by Accurate IT. CRT monitors and tube televisions may be disposed of for an additional fee paid to Accurate IT:$40 for CRT, rear-projection and DLP televisions; and $10 for computer monitors (CRT) or flat-panel (LCD/LED/plasma) televisions.
