City holding electronics, hazardous waste, document disposal on July 7

If you have any household hazardous waste, electronics, or documents you want shredded, head to the Fort Totten Transfer Station on Saturday the 7th. I'll be there, for sure.
Monthly HHW/E-Cycling/Personal Document Shredding, Sat., July 7, At Ft. Totten Transfer Station 
DC Residents May Drop Off These Items Between 8 am and 3 pm. 
The Department of Public Works announced today its monthly Household Hazardous Waste/E-Cycling/Personal Document Shredding drop-off will be on Saturday, July 7, between 8 am and 3 pm at the Ft. Totten Transfer Station. District residents may bring toxic items, such as pesticides, batteries and cleaning fluids to Ft. Totten, along with computers, televisions and other unwanted electronic equipment. Personal document shredding also is available and residents may bring up to five boxes of materials to be shredded. No business or commercial material will be accepted. 
To accommodate residents whose religious beliefs prohibit them from using the Saturday drop-off, DPW will accept household hazardous waste and e-cyclables only on the Thursday before the first Saturday of the month (July 5, from 1 pm to 5 pm). While DPW normally offers personal document shredding on the first Saturday, items for shredding cannot be accepted on Thursdays because these documents cannot be protected until the shredding contractor arrives the first Saturday. 
For a list of all household hazardous waste and e-cyclables accepted by DPW, please click on the HHW link at www.dpw.dc.gov<http://www.dpw.dc.gov>. 
Directions to Ft. Totten: Travel east on Irving Street, NW, turn left on Michigan Avenue, turn left on John F. McCormack Road, NE and continue to the end of the street.
