By Jim Donovan: The Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders are sponsoring a free document shredding and e-waste recycling event for County residents this Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Robert C. Shinn, Jr. Recycling Center at 130 Hancock Lane off County Route 541 in Westampton.

County residents may bring confidential documents for shredding and televisions, computers and laptops to be recycled. Staff will unload directly from vehicles. This event is for Burlington County residents only, please no businesses or non-profits.

These events have always been well-received by residents. At the event last month, 989 residents brought 24,100 pounds of confidential documents to be shredded and recycled 40,628 pounds of electronic items, which is even more of a priority since State law banned them from all landfills and incinerators in 2011.
