By Jim Donovan: Burlington County, N.J. residents will have the opportunity to shred confidential documents and safely dispose of computers and TVs on Saturday, Feb. 22nd from 9 am to 1 pm at the Robert C. Shinn Recycling Center, 130 Hancock Lane in Westampton. This is the first such event of 2014.

Residents are urged to bring only “confidential” documents for shredding, such as bank and credit card statements, tax returns, papers with account numbers or social security numbers. They will be shredded on-site. They should not bring already-shredded paper, binders, plastic folders, computer disks or plastic credit cards. Up to four bags or boxes per household will be accepted.

In addition to shredding documents, county residents may also drop off TVs, computer equipment, non-working microwaves, stereos, vacuum cleaners, and, yes, even toasters, blenders and similar small household appliances. This is in addition to the laptops, monitors, computer keyboards, mice/cables, printers, desktop copiers, scanners, fax machines, VCR/DVD/MP3 players, cell phones, game consoles and rechargeable batteries the program already accepts.

This event is for Burlington County residents only. ID is required. For more information call 609-499-1001 or email recycle@co.burlington.nj.us
