Henrico Police help citizens recycle electronics and prevent ID theft

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Henrico Police and Henrico County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling are collaborating to help citizens responsibly recycle electronic items and prevent identity theft – all at the same time!

From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 1400 Best Plaza Drive (off East Parham Road, one block east of I-95), the two departments will conduct a document shredding and electronics-recycling event.

Citizens will be able to have personal documents securely shred free on site by Iron Mountain. They will also be able to dispose of unwanted electronics responsibly by recycling them. Computer systems and accessories, printers, scanners, copiers, FAX machines, VCRs, camcorders, stereos, microwave ovens and other electronic items may be recycled free.

For a $10 fee, citizens also will be able to recycle old televisions.

Citizens may bring up to two boxes (10″x13″x18″) or three paper grocery bags of personal documents only to be shred free. No recyclable paper items will be accepted for shredding. The electronics recycling does not accept compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), refrigerators, dehumidifiers, or air conditioners.

For more information about the electronics recycling, call 804-340-0900. Call 501-4838 for more information about the shredding event.
