Get your papers shredded at a local free community shredding event

Purging papers can be a tedious task, but doesn’t it feel good to get it out of your house?  Unfortunately, it’s often a 2-step process to get it out, because much of the paper we’re dealing with today is too sensitive to simply toss into the recycle can. Step 2 is shredding the paper, which is fine when you only have a few papers, but if you’ve spent an hour or more purging some old files, you’re probably going to end up with a couple of boxes full of paper, which will now take forever to shred on your small home-based shredder!

Before you shove your boxes into a closet or the basement, check your local newspaper to see if there are any local community shredding events in the area.

For local subscribers, this Saturday, September 6, local TV station, NBC4 and Allstate will be sponsoring a community event at the Largo campus of the Prince Georges Community College.   Shred-it will be offering this free service, of which there is a limit of 5 boxes, so don’t get too carried away, and please note that only paper is accepted.  Electronic media, electronics and binders will not be accepted.  This event is from 8am-11am, and they ask that you arrive by 11am and remain in your car.

I will be sharing a few more shredding events in a few days that will be taking place in the Maryland/DC metro area, so stay tuned.
