The Beaufort County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling is holding a special Electronic Goods Collection and Document Shredding event Saturday, May 17, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at two locations.
Residents are encouraged to bring their broken computers, televisions, and other electronic items for recycling. S.C. Law 48-60, enacted last year, prohibits dumping electronic items in the landfill or at County Convenience Centers. Secure shredding of residential documents will also be provided at no charge.
The public can take items to the Public Works North site at 140 Shanklin Road near the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, and the Public Works South site at 9 Benton Field Road off Burnt Church Road, Bluffton.
If you have questions concerning the Electronics or Shredding Event, please call Carol Murphy at the Solid Waste and Recycling Division at 843-255-2734 or www.bcgov.net/recycle.
