FREE Community Shred Days!

Spring Date Coming Soon!

Nearly 32,000 pounds, or 16 tons of paper was shred and recycled on Saturday, October 20th, as part of our free community shred day. It is estimated that each ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, which means that about 272 trees were potentially saved because of the event.

2,000 pounds of food was also collected during the event to benefit local food pantries. Thank you to everyone who joined us and donated!

Check back soon for our next Community Shred Day date, time and locations!
