Redwood City, CA - June 15, 2009 - Electronic waste (e-waste) is an ongoing problem for households, businesses, and the environment. And, many people aren’t sure what to do with old, confidential or general documents that they need destroyed. Here’s an opportunity to address both of those issues: Redwood City is hosting a FREE E-Waste Disposal and Document Shredding event sponsored by South Bayside Waste Management Authority (www.rethinkwaste.org).
- Saturday, June 20th, 2009
