Paper shredding day on April 26 is great for spring cleaning

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Do you need a great reason to shred old personal documents and financial statements on April 26?  Here are a few: Earth Day, spring cleaning, paper recycling, and protection from identity theft.

That’s probably enough, but here’s another, an opportunity to donate to our local food pantry. The cost to participate is donating one can of tuna or fruit per box of paper or $1 a box. The maximum is eight boxes of paper per car, shredded on-site. Shredding trucks will be at the Island Beach parking lot April 26 from 9 to 1. Paper shreds will be recycled.

Spring cleaning doesn’t always include old files and dusty boxes of personal documents. Make it your 2014 mission. Collect what you no longer need and bring it to shredding day.

This event is multitasking at its best — recycling paper to save trees which continuously provide clean air and replenishing shelves at Neighbor-to-Neighbor’s food pantry.

Plus there’s a bonus. You can drop off old cell phones you’ve had sitting in a drawer. We will send them off to be recycled.  Or you can drop old cell phones in recycling drop boxes around town all year long at the First Bank of Greenwich in Cos Cob, Perrot Library in Old Greenwich, Holly Hill E-waste in Byram, New England Cleaners in Greenwich, or Greenwich Green & Clean at Pemberwick Park.

The sponsors for this event are the First Bank of Greenwich and Santaguida Sanitation. It is organized by the Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Greenwich Green and Clean.
