If you have unused electronic devices and personal records taking up space but you have no idea of how to get rid of them properly, help is on the way.
A free electronic recycling and personal document destruction event will occur Saturday, April 30th from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm on the driving range/south parking lot at LBHS.
There you can safely dispose of your personal documents such as taxes, medical records or old checks. Underwritten by Bank of Botetourt and The Bank of Fincastle, a document shredding truck will be on site where you can watch your records being destroyed without any concern of anyone being able to use them for identity theft. This service is available for personal or household records only; records of a business or commercial enterprise will not be accepted. The on-site shredding service is provided by H&R Contractors, Inc.
You also can safely dispose of electronic devices such as computer components, telephones, VCR’s, microwave ovens, small appliances and TV’s. Scott Recycling LLC will assure that any and all information on hard drives will be drilled through and the hard drive will be destroyed. White goods such as refrigerators, freezers, washers and dryers, dishwashers cannot be accepted.
The response at the first of these events at LBHS last November was overwhelming.. Approximately 147 vehicles from 15 different zip codes utilized the drive through convenience to dispose of 2,860 pounds of documents and 11,479 pounds of electronic equipment. An official of the document shredder company commented that it was “…the most paper I have seen at one of these events.”
This free event is a community service project of the Key Club of Lord Botetourt High School and the Kiwanis Club of Botetourt County.
