Free Maryland Shredding Events this Spring

shred dayWe’re in spring cleaning mode, which may not only include spring cleaning your home, but may also include spring cleaning your paper.  Local community shredding events can help you to discard sensitive paperwork after a spring clean session, instead of clogging up your  home shredding machine!

This is why I like to pay attention to any local community shredding events coming up in the area in the spring and fall, so that I can also share them with you.  If you don’t see an event near you, please visit the shredding company’s website.  You could also arrange for the company to come to your home for a one-time fee.

Please note that some of the events may be fundraisers, so please consider a small donation if you attend a shred day fundraising event. The following are a few community shredding events this spring in the area (Maryland-Baltimore metro/Washington, DC metro). If you live outside of this area, visit the company websites with national chains to see if they are offering an event near you.
