Electronics recycling and document shredding
The Beaufort County Division of Solid Waste and Recycling has scheduled a special Electronics Goods Collection and Document Shredding Event Saturday, August 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event was planned as a convenience to citizens after the state made it illegal to dump electronics in the landfill. 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 this event. Two county public works sites will accept the items: the Public Works North site at 140 Shanklin Road near the Marine Corps Air Station, Beaufort and the Public Works South site at 102 Benton Field Road off Burnt Church Road, Bluffton. Acceptable electronics include such items as computers, printers, scanners, power supplies, monitors, UPS, hard drives, servers, lap tops, 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.
