Power Purge

Over the years, Crystal City's Power Purge & Shred, hosted in partnership with Vornado/Charles E. Smith and the Kane Company's eCyclers division, has recyled nearly 300,000 pounds of electronics and shredded almost 60,000 pounds of paper. The program helped ensure personal information - whether printed on paper or stored electronically - would be destroyed safely, securely, and recycled. With the emergence of smaller electronics devices and duplicative electronics recycling programs operated by local government, the Crystal City Business Improvement District has decided to discontinue the annual program and instead encourage utilization of Arlington County's monthly E-Care event on the first Saturday of the month.
