Durham Shred-A-Thon and Electronics Recycling/Disposal

Sunday, May 1, 2011

I promised I would tell you about these events and look what I found in my inbox this morning! As it turns out, we are having our very own Shred-A-Thon here in Durham this coming Sunday. This event also includes electronics (basically anything with a cord).

Date: Sunday, May 1, from
Time:  12:00 – 5:00 PM
Where: Durham Central Park, located at 502 Foster St. (downtown Durham)


Electronics: Old computers, printers, monitors, televisions, cell phones, and nearly anything else with a cord is accepted for recycling. Exceptions – no large appliances (no washers or bigger items) or items with Freon (no air conditioning units).

Free paper shredding: Provided on site. Paper may contain paper clips and staples; however, hanging file folders will not be accepted. Residents may be present to witness the shredding of their confidential documents.

Hosted by the City of Durham’s Solid Waste Management Department

PS – On an entirely different but more important note, for anyone interested in helping the Red Cross provide food, shelter, relief supplies and emotional support to the people affected by the storms here in the south, you can text the word REDCROSS to 90999. A $10 donation will be added to your next cell phone bill.
