Have sensitive documents like tax forms or medical records that you want to get rid of?
Bring them to the library.
Shred Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 19, in the library’s auxiliary parking lot on the corner of Mentor Avenue and Sharonlee Drive.
The service is free and open to everyone. You can drop off as many five document-storage boxes or bags of paper.
And you don’t have to worry about your sensitive documents being stolen instead of shredded. Everything will be loaded into locked bins on a secure truck, which will be attended at all times by Xpress Shredding staff. Then the truck will be taken to the company’s secure shredding facility.
The documents will then be shredded and the shredded paper recycled.
Shred Day will be held rain or shine (or, the way this spring is going, snow.) Xpress staff will even help patrons remove their boxes or bags from their cars for them.
Additionally, any library patron who participates in Shred Day will also receive a coupon from Xpress for an additional box of paper to be shredded when it’s dropped off at Xpress’s facility on Tyler Boulevard.
