      HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE/E-CYCLING/ DOCUMENT SHREDDING

      SITE SAT., AUG. 2

      (Washington, DC) The Department of Public Works will open its second
      permanent household hazardous waste/e-cycling drop-off and document
      shredding site Saturday, August 2, 2008, at the Ft. Totten Trash
      Transfer Station, 4900 Bates Road, NE. The site will be open every

      residents' toxic household materials and old electronic items.

      District residents may bring up to five, medium-size boxes (no larger

      paper and binder clips on the paper are okay) and credit cards will be
      accepted. No business or commercial material will be accepted.

      The District is the first Washington area jurisdiction to offer weekly
      free document shredding for residents.

      In May, DPW opened its first household hazardous
      waste/e-cycling/ document shredding site at the Benning Road Trash
      Transfer Station, 3200 Benning Road, NE. It also is open every
      Saturday, except holidays, from 8 am to 3 pm.

      antifreeze, cleansers, asbestos tile, aerosols, petroleum products,
      batteries, solvents, wood preservatives, used motor and boat oil,
