Kick-start your spring cleaning

Just found out that our friendly neighbors over at E-PASS are sponsoring a shredding and electronics recycling event on Saturday, February 20th from 10 am to 2 pm.

It will be at the Colonial Plaza (2728 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32803) near the intersection of Primrose and Colonial, in the parking lot area in front of where Circuit City was once located. Look for the orange E-PASS tent for giveaways.

This is a great way to prevent identity theft by shredding those documents you’ve accumulated and to recycle electronics you’re no longer using.

It is free and open to everyone.

Bring your obsolete documents and watch as they are shredded. It can be incredibly empowering. (Although, you will also have the option to drop off documents for shredding at a secure, off-site facility if you can't wait in line.)

In addition, bring all working and non-working electronics EXCEPT TVs for recycling. Data will be destroyed as appropriate and a certificate of destruction can even be emailed to you.

Again, NO TV's, but they will accept the following:

* desktop, tower & laptop computers
* CRT, LCD, plasma monitors/displays
* printers/plotters
* fax machines
* telephone systems, switches
* cell phones
* PDAs
* radios
* stereos
* video games
* projectors & cameras
* any kind of storage media

For computers and other items like cell phones and PDAs, a private company will process the item for data destruction (factory clearing cell phones and degaussing the SIM cards; three pass electronic erasure and Department of Defense level sanitization of hard drives.) All identifying marks, stickers and labels are removed. If media cannot be securely destroyed electronically, physical destruction is carried out at their facility.

For more information, please call 407-690-5000.
