Paper Shredder Catches Fire

Violating privacy law, health department discards personal information of people applying for benefits in public trash bin

By Observer-Dispatch. Posted Apr 02, 2012

UTICA - A paper shredder reportedly was responsible for a small fire Monday on the second floor of the Mohawk Valley Psychiatric Center. The Psych Center is located at 1400 Noyes St. 

First responders reported smoke in the building after arriving just before 9 a.m. Monday, but said the flames had been put out by the building's sprinkler system. They later determined the fire started in a paper shredder.  

Initial reports indicated the building was evacuated due to the fire, but police at the scene said they had not seen anyone outside when they arrived. It's possible staff members moved to another portion of the three-story building rather than exiting altogether.  

Firefighters requested fans to help ventilate the building and assistance from security in accessing secure portions of the building and opening locked windows.

Responsible Electronics Recycling Act

RERA Limiting the Export of US Electronics Waste


By Scrap Posted April 16, 2012

MOUNT VERNON, NY (Scrap Monster): Standing at one of Westchester County's largest electronic waste recycling facilities, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced legislation to promote domestic recycling of electronic waste. The Responsible Electronics Recycling Act would grow the domestic electronic recycling industry by limiting the export of electronic waste to countries that disregard the environmental impacts of their practices and exploit their workers. While many countries have laws in place to address e-waste management and disposal, the U.S. lacks a comprehensive strategy to confront exportation concerns and ramp up domestic recycling operations. 

"This legislation will crack down on the reckless handling of electronic waste overseas, boost responsible domestic e-waste recycling at facilities like WeRecycle!, and protect Americans from fraudulent schemes that threaten national security," said Senator Gillibrand. "With more and more electronic waste generated every year, it is critical that we support domestic facilities that dispose of it properly. By limiting exports of electronic waste we can bring good-paying green-collar jobs back to the U.S., and ensure that countries like China and India don't benefit from their dangerous and abusive practices."
