Free E-cycling and Document Shredding in Crystal City on April 27

Looking for a convenient way to get rid of your old computer, printer, bank records, and more?  You could wait for the first Saturday of the month and drive to DC's Fort Totten facility, or you could drop off your unwanted hazardous waste this Wednesday, at the free e-cycling and shredding event in Northern Virginia.  Here's what you need to know:

What:  Power Purge and Shred
When:  Wednesday, April 27 from 7:00am - 7:00pm
Where:  Parking Lot at 20th Street & S. Bell Street, 2001 Jefferson Davis Highway, Crystal City, VA

Crystal City government, partnering with the eCyclers division of the Kane Company, is sponsoring this event, to which you can bring everything from batteries to desktop computers and laptops to TVs, monitors and microwaves. There will be strict chain-of-custody control over the electronics from the moment of drop-off until the items are safely, securely and responsibly destroyed by Kane Company personnel and subsequently delivered to a USEPA 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 onsite 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.
