Why Host a Community Shredding Event?
- Are you a non-profit organization? Any costs associated with your event (eg, our fee) are likely tax-deductible.
- You are providing a useful service to your community. With the threat of identity theft becoming ever more apparent, people are beginning to recognize shredding as not just a smart precaution, but a necessity. Furthermore, most people do not own shredders or do not have enough materials to justify hiring a shredding company. Host your own shredding event and become the go-to shredding location for your members, friends, and neighbors!
- Go Green! Many people do not realize just how ecologically unfriendly it is throw away paper. Community Shredding Events have been known to generate one or more tons of shredded paper. After your Shred Day is over, we bring the shredded materials to a specialized recycling center for processing. Materials later return to the world as everyday paper goods.
