Looking to Dispose of Electronics Environmentally? Power Purge & Shred, Apr. 27

Spring cleaning goes electric in Crystal City with the annual Power Purge and Shred.

When:   April 27, 2011 from 7am – 7pm.
Where:  20th and Bell Street, 2001 Jefferson Davis Highway Arlington, VA

The Power Purge & Shred allows area businesses and residents to safely and securely shred and recycle unwanted and outdated documents and electronics.

Partnering with the eCyclers division of the Kane Company, the Power Purge & Shred drop-off site will take everything from batteries, desktop computers and laptops, to TVs, monitors and microwaves. The eCyclers' strict chain-of-custody maintains control over the electronics from the moment they pick it up until it is safely, securely and responsibly destroyed by their personnel and subsequently delivered to a US EPA-approved recycler. Skeptics can even watch the eCyclers team physically destroy their hard drives with an onsite "hard drive crusher" and walk away with a certification of secure destruction and rest assured that the equipment will never find its way to offshore toxic waste sites.

Documents will be shredded on site courtesy of the Office Shredding division of the Kane Company. Document destruction can help reduce the risk of exposure by ensuring proper compliance with existing privacy laws and keeping abreast of new or updated federal regulations. The Kane Company can also help ensure compliance with the guidelines of corporate ethics programs, safeguard public image, and protect businesses, customers, and employees from identity theft.

This is a project of the Crystal City Business Improvement District.
