The Beaufort County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling is holding a special Electronic Goods Collection and Document Shredding event Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at two locations.
Residents are encouraged to bring their broken computers, televisions, and other electronic appliances for disposal.

Secure shredding of personal and tax documents will also be provided at no charge at the event.
Two county public works sites will accept the items: the Public Works North site at 140 Shanklin Road site near the Marine Corps Air Station, Beaufort, and the Public Works South site at 9 Benton Field Road off Burnt Church Road, Bluffton.
Acceptable electronic items include computers, printers, scanners, power supplies, monitors, UPS, hard drives, servers, laptops, cables, wires, surge protectors, switch boxes, sound equipment, tape drives, power supplies, calculators, copy machines, VCRs, DVD players, electric motors, cash registers, overhead projectors, transformers, test equipment, telephones, cell phones and other goods.
For more information or for instructions regarding the recycling of large quantities, please call the Beaufort County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling at 255-2734.
