Have sensitive documents like tax forms or medical records that you want to get rid of?
Bring them to the library.
We’re partnering with Xpress Shredding for our 10th annual Shred Day in which people can have their documents shredded for free. Shred Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, in our auxiliary parking lot on the corner of Mentor Avenue and Sharonlee Drive.
The free service is available to Mentor residents and library patrons. People can drop off as many five document-storage boxes or bags of paper.
All documents 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 take the boxes and bags to Xpress’s secure facility where the documents will be shredded and the shredded paper recycled. Shred Day will be held rain or shine.
