Shredding and Electronics Recycling Event‏ Feb. 20th

Following an unprecedented response to our first event, E-PASS is sponsoring another shredding and electronics recycling event Saturday, February 20th from 10 am to 2 pm. It will be at the Colonial Plaza (2728 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32803) near the intersection of Primrose and Colonial, in the parking lot area in front of where Circuit City was once located. Look for the orange E-PASS tent for giveaways.

If you missed the first event, now is your chance to help prevent identity theft by shredding those documents you’ve accumulated and recycling electronics you’re no longer using. This is a free event, open to everyone. Residents can bring their documents and watch as they are shredded. In an effort to reduce wait times, there will also be an option to drop off documents for shredding at a secure, off-site facility.

In addition, participants can bring working and non-working electronics (excluding TVs) for recycling. Data will be destroyed as appropriate and a certificate of destruction will be available to be emailed to you. See below for accepted items. E-PASS and the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority are not responsible for any items dropped off during this event.

The following electronics will be accepted, working or not working: desktop, tower, laptop computers; CRT, LCD, plasma monitors/displays; printers/plotters; fax machines; telephone systems, switches; cell phones, PDAs, radios; stereos; VHS/DVDs; video games; projectors, cameras; any kind of storage media. At this time, we CANNOT accept TVs.

For computers and other items like cell phones and PDAs, a private company will process the item for data destruction (factory clearing cell phones and degaussing the sim cards; three pass electronic erasure and Department of Defense level sanitization of hard drives.) All identifying marks, stickers and labels are removed. If media cannot be securely destroyed electronically, physical destruction is carried out at their facility.

For more information, please call 407-690-5000.
