You know those piles of files and old electronics cluttering up the basement — there may be a solution this weekend.
CAA Saskatchewan and Crown Shred & Recycling have scheduled a confidential document shredding and electronics recycling day for Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Crown Shred & Recycling, 225-6th Ave. East.
Donations raised from the event will go to the Regina Food Bank.
For a minimum $10 donation to the Regina Food Bank, six boxes of confidential documents will be accepted for secure destruction services by Crown Shred & Recycling. For an additional $10 minimum donation, small to large size electronics will be accepted for recycling.
The event is open to the public on a first come first serve basis with no advance registration or guaranteed appointment times. Participants are asked to remain in their vehicles for the entire process, and wear a mask when interacting with the volunteers. Event staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and gloves for added safety.
What else you need to know: Remove staples, paper and binder clips, and any other types of metal or plastic bindings from documents; acceptable electronics are desktop and portable scanners, eBook readers, external storage drives and modems, GPS systems, photocopiers, video game systems, microwaves, home and vehicle audio/visual systems, printers and scanners, keyboards, mice and trackballs, desktop and portable computers, televisions and monitors, and non-cellular corded and cordless phones; and remove all batteries from your electronics.
Do not bring mixed media items like floppies, VCR/video tapes, computer hard drives, fax machines, cell phones, iPads, CD’s, USB drives, and memory sticks as they require specialized media destruction to protect your privacy.
