Rotary recycling includes doc shredding, meds turn-in

Sep 10, 2017

Belfast — Rotarians will take documents for shredding and electronics (e-Waste), while Waldo County Sheriff's Department will accept unwanted medications at a community recycling event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23.

Area residents are invited to dispose of documents that identity thieves regularly use to commit fraud — old bills and receipts, junk mail, account statements, and unused pre-approved offers of credit. As many as 9 million Americans have their identity stolen every year, and shredding documents helps prevent thieves from accessing personal information.

In addition, Belfast Rotary will accept almost all electronics (see their website for details on acceptable e-Waste) at the event, to be held at the Belfast Public Works Department parking lot, 115 Congress St. Records Management Center will have a shredding truck onsite to securely shred all private documents. After shredding, paper materials will be 100-percent recycled.

Note: Personal documents only. No commercial/business documents will be accepted for shredding without prior approval from the Belfast Rotary Club. Please limit shredding to five boxes maximum, no larger than 24”x12”x12” each, or equivalent. No need to remove staples, paperclips or binder clips.

Donations are welcome, and will benefit one or more of our charitable programs and/or our Club’s operating expenses. Donations will be requested.
