Securely Recycle Your Devices for a Good Cause

 

Spring cleaning always brings up questions of what to keep and how to get rid of something you no longer need. But what about the old computer or other electronics you don’t know how to dispose of safely? Shelby County Libraries a drive-thru technology recycling event is here to help.

On Saturday, April 13, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, Shelby County residents will be able to drive right up to the library garage at Amos Memorial Public Library where a volunteer will unload their devices.

Devices brought to the recycling drive will be donated to PCs for People, a nonprofit that refurbishes some devices to provide for individuals and families with low income. Any device that is not refurbished will be recycled in an environmentally friendly way.

“What’s great about PCs for People is not only are they helping get devices into homes that might struggle to afford it, but they ensure that all recycled devices, refurbished or not, are securely wiped clean of any personally identifiable or sensitive information,” says Bob Jones, IT Assistant at Shelby County Libraries.

Tube (CRT) televisions and kitchen appliances are not accepted. Contact Amos Memorial Public Library to inquire about specific items not listed.

Follow the signs to enter the library alley via Main Ave. Stop at the Library Garage where volunteers will unload the devices from your car.
