Our last event on April 6, 2013 was once again very successful. We filled both trucks, 11,320 pounds of paper! Thank you to all participants.
All events will be a drive-thru service. Please stay in your vehicle. An attendant will come to your vehicle and transfer all documents for shredding to a bin. Shredding will be completed on-site before you leave. Your containers (i.e. cardboard boxes, bins, etc.) will be returned to you. If you bring your documents in plastic bags, please leave them untied so they can be accessed more quickly.
Acceptable items for shredding are any personal paper documents that are loose, folded, stapled or in envelopes. Please remember to check your papers for foreign objects prior to coming to a Shred-A-Thon. Here is a sample of items found mixed in with people's documents during past events: large seashells, rocks, batteries, computer mouse, computer cables, clothes and other items that would have damaged the shred machine on the truck.
Documents from businesses and personal videos, cassettes, CDs, DVDs, photographs, photo slides, and credit cards will NOT be accepted.
Shred-it (phone 336-9369), has donated their time and services for these events. They will provide secure and reliable destruction of your documents.
Please be aware that events may end early due to extreme weather or if shredding bins fill to capacity.
For more information, please call (520) 351-4615 during regular business hours.
