In conjunction with "Make a Difference Day", The City of Milford will be hosting a Community Shred, Electronic Recycling and Fall Litter Clean Up on October 25th, 9a.m. to noon.
Residents and local businesses are invited to take advantage of a free electronic recycling event at the Municipal Building located at 745 Center Street. Computers, monitors, printers, keyboards and a variety of other electronic equipment will be accepted for recycling. For more information about this event, contact the Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator at (513) 248-5092.“Computer hard drives contain more personal information than most people realize so it’s important to dispose of them in a way that protects you from identity theft” said Chief Jamey Mills. “I hope that as many area residents and businesses as possible will take advantage of this free recycling event to conveniently, safely and responsibly discard old electronics. Recycling computer monitors, laptops and other electronic devices keeps these items out of landfills and lightens our impact on the environment,” said Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator Susan Ellerhorst.
“This electronic recycling event is a further example of the commitment that great communities such as Milford have made to our environment. Together, we are helping the community become more environmentally responsible and are offering them a convenient opportunity to safely dispose of their old electronic devices at the same time,” said Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator Susan Ellerhorst.
C3 partners with local businesses and individual donors to offer computer recycling and reuse programs across the Greater Cincinnati area. Businesses that are interested in donating after the event can contact Daniel Meek, C3 program coordinator, at (513) 771-3262 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an individual pickup or drop off.
Before you toss old bank records and tax statements, take a moment and put the sensitive documents in a bag or box and circle October 25, 2014 on your calendar. The City of Milford and Cintas Document Management will be sponsoring a free Community Shred Day on October 25, 2014 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Municipal Building parking lot located at 745 Center Street. This is an excellent opportunity to properly dispose of personal documents and other materials containing sensitive information instead of placing your documents in your recycling bin.
Chief of Police Jamey Mills stated “Safely discarding documents that contain personal identifiers is one of the best ways to prevent identity theft.” Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator Susan Ellerhorst exclaimed “The free Community Shred Days are well attended as they provide residents with a safe, secure and convenient way to dispose of their confidential documents.”
Don’t become victims of identity theft; shred your sensitive documents. This service is free to all citizens and businesses in the community. Contact the Administration Office at (513) 831-4192 for additional information about the Community Shred.
