Start gathering up anything in your household that needs to be shredded because… BHC OA’s Shred Away Day is on the docket—February 24th, 9:00 to Noon, Jumano Park!
What you need to know:
Improper document management globally costs citizens millions of dollars in liabilities due to identity theft. Let’s protect ourselves by appropriately disposing of personalized documents. For Block House Creek residents, all households simply need to take advantage of BHC OA’s SHRED AWAY DAY—February 24th, 9:00 AM to Noon, Jumano Park, 1301 S. Block House Drive.
Bring your bags of shreddables to Jumano Park, hand your bags to the Shred-It attendant, and watch the contents be finely shredded right before your eyes! No limit—the more the better! Let’s strive to top last year’s return of six tons of shredded material to the world of recycling!
What exactly will the shredding company accept? From Shred-It: “We can shred just about anything, but we mostly shred paper. And instead of using conventional strip-cut shredders, we use crosscut shredding technology that reduces the paper to fine, confetti-like pieces. In addition, there’s no way the paper we shred can ever be reconstructed again because the confetti-like pieces are immediately combined with previously shredded documents. You don’t have to worry about removing paper clips or staples. Our shredders can handle that, too.” Important fact… all materials shredded through Shred-It, the largest recycler of white paper in the nation, are 100% recycled, a significant contributor to keeping our environment free of waste.
So what CANNOT be accepted? No hanging file folders, three-ring binders, binder clips, or media, such as CDs or tapes.
NOTE: This event is open to ALL residents of Block House Creek. Proof of residency will be required, so please be prepared to present a MUD bill or driver’s license identifying your address as within the parameters of Block House Creek.
REQUEST: A BHC volunteer is needed for this event to assist with directing traffic. Only a few hours of a volunteer’s time is needed. Anyone interesting in volunteering to help out with Shred Away Day is requested to contact Pam Phillips, email@example.com.
