Spring clean your paper files and learn about privacy. More opportunities to dispose of your confidential papers safely. NCSU’s paper shredding includes electronic recycling. Electronic recylcers reclaim and recycle your old electronics (TVs, computers, voice recorders etc.). This is far better than in the unenlightened era when we tossed our old monitors into the landfill.
