Computer Recycling Event Continues to be Success
Both Securis Inc. and Securis NE will be holding their residential recycling event on the second Saturday of every month. Securis will open its doors from 10:00AM – 2:00PM on every second Saturday to ensure that residents in the area have a place to safely dispose of and recycle their electronic equipment.
The idea for the drop off day event was conceived because Securis understands that most people are not aware of the need to properly recycle electronics. This event was designed to involve members of the community in the recycling process as well as provide a safe and cost effective way to get rid of electronic waste. There are many residents who take advantage of our monthly event so we wanted to make sure that everyone who wanted to drop off their materials had the proper customer service to create a smooth recycling process.
Securis Inc.’s Residential collection events will continue to offer paper shredding services with their partner, Office Shredding®, a Kane Company. This residential shredding service will be available concurrent with our recycling and data destruction services at our warehouse in Chantilly, VA. Currently, paper shredding services are not available at our Watervliet, NY location.
At the event, Securis Inc. takes anything considered to be “electronics” such as televisions, monitors, computers, audio and stereo equipment, VCRs, DVD players, video cameras, telephones, fax and copying machines, wireless appliances, cellular phones, video game consoles, or pretty much anything with a plug. Currently, we offer our data destruction service which allows you to watch as your hard drive is pulverized. Securis strives to keep abreast with matters of high security.
Resident participation continues to grow exponentially. The event averages anywhere from 100-155 participants every month. Residents collect their recyclable materials and drop off close to100 pounds per person. This monthly residential recycling event has prevented at least 475,000 pounds of potentially toxic materials from being dumped in a landfill. By protecting the environment, you are also protecting yourself and your interests.
