The Edmonds Branch of 1st Security Bank, at 620 Edmonds Way, will host a free Shredding and Electronic Waste Recycling Day this Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The bank is encouraging people to help reduce identity theft crimes by recycling sensitive documents and/or electronic items no longer in use.
People may bring up to 10 boxes or bags of paper for shredding and up to 10 of the following electronic items (per person) to be recycled, free of charge: TVs, CPUs, computer monitors, laptops and cell phones. Other items will be accepted, but a fee will be charged.
Early arrival is recommended as shredding is on a first come, first served basis until the truck is full. Documents will be shredded on site, while you watch. Cardboard boxes and/or bags will be returned to you. There are items that can or cannot be put into the receptacles with the paper.
A full list of items appropriate for disposal or shredding is available on the bank’s website.
