HOLY COW! AMY I LOVE YOU! We have been burning an enormous trashbag full ofaccount info from way back to 1995! (I completely wish I were kidding) Thanks for the post! I am reposting in full b/c I am using this opportunity in full.

Plus E-PASS will also be giving away goodies including certificates for a free E-PASS Mini sticker tag (limited quantities apply).

"Get a leg up on Spring cleaning and help prevent identity theft by shredding those documents you've accumulated and recycling electronics you are no longer using. E-PASS is sponsoring a shredding event Saturday, January 16, 2010, at the Colonial Plaza (2728 East Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL 32803) near the intersection of Primrose and Colonial. The event is scheduled from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parking lot area in front of where Circuit City was once located. Look for the orange E-PASS tent.

In addition, participants can bring working and non-working electronics for recycling. Data will be destroyed as appropriate and a certificate of destruction will be available. E-PASS is 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; televisions; printers/plotters; fax machines; telephone systems, switches; cell phones, PDAs, radios; stereos; VHS/DVDs; video games; projectors, cameras; any kind of storage media.

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) and provide the appropriate certificate of destruction. All identifying marks, stickers and labels are removed. If media cannot be securely destroyed electronically, physical destruction is carried out at their facility."
