Shred day cancelled

Unfortunately, we have to cancel the free document shredding day we scheduled for this Saturday, Jan. 13.

Northwest Refuse, the compay who provided the mobile shredder at our events, told us earlier this month that the shredded broke down, and they didn’t know when (or if) they could get a replacement.

But we will work on another shredding date, so look for updates right here on our blog.

One ton of paper shredded at Shredfest



Number of the day:

1,920

That’s the amount of paper, in pounds, that Northwest Refuse shredded at our Shredfest last weekend. Almost one ton of paper securely obliterated.

It was a freezing cold and rainy day that Saturday, but about 50 people stopped by to shred their confidential documents in our Home Office parking lot. Bill and the guys from Northwest deserve a pat on the back for standing out there all day to help people out.

We posted some pictures from the event, and I took some video (above) of how the process works.

Stay tuned for news on whether we’ll hold another Shredfest. In the meantime, Northwest Refuse does this kind of thing during regular businesses hours, so be sure to pay them a visit.

Next shred day set.

Our next free paper shredding day?

Mark your calendar: it’s going to be Saturday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

So start collecting your credit card offers, tax forms, personal documents, etc. You bring ’em, we’ll shred ’em!

Northwest Refuse will bring their giant shredding machine to take care of it all, too.

Stay tuned for updates and more information!
