Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) April 17, 2016
The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) has partnered with the North Vancouver RCMP (RCMP) for a fraud prevention month hard drive shredding and e-waste collection for the general public. Visitors will learn the answers to all of their fraud-related questions, and safely dispose of their old electronics. After the drives are shredder, the computers or laptops can be refurbished, for donation or resale.
“Fraud prevention month is intended to facilitate conversations around new scams and how individuals can reduce their risk of falling victim to them,” says Bojan Paduh, president and founder of ERA. “Our goal is to help RCMP ensure the public has access to tools and information to protect themselves, and by offering free and secure hard drive shredding we’re happy to make a tangible contribution.”
ERA will be bringing a portable hard drive shredder to allow the public to shred their personal devices, free of charge. Devices that the public can bring include phones, gaming consoles, music players, stereo equipment, computers, handheld devices, printers and other electronic equipment that may contain personal data.
If you have missed the event on March 30th, you can still contact the Electronic Recycling Association and arrange an onsite or offsite event of your own. The shredder is also available for rental and per hour shredding appointments.
