Rotary schedules recycling event Sept. 28

Sep 06, 2019

Belfast — Time to toss sensitive documents, e-waste and unwanted medications at Belfast Rotary Club's recycling event Saturday, Sept. 28, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Public Works parking lot, 115 Congress St. All are welcome.

Rotarians advise you to take advantage of this free service, to dispose of documents that identity thieves regularly use to commit fraud, such as old bills, 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.

Almost all unwanted electronics (e-waste) will be accepted. For a complete list of acceptable items, visit Obsolete TVs and computer components are the most common items to be recycled.

The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office will also be onsite collecting all unwanted medications.

The Rotary Club recycling event benefits one or more of the club's charitable programs. Donations will be requested.

A shred truck will be onsite to securely shred all of your documents while you watch. After being shredded, all paper materials will be 100% recycled. Records Management Center of Bangor will provide shredding services, while Electronics End LLC of Brewer will collect e-waste.

All residents and local business are welcome. Large loads (10-plus boxes of paper or 10-plus e-waste components) require prior approval of Belfast Rotary Club. No need to remove staples, paperclips or binder clips.
