Shredding event pushed to today

Hurricane Sandy has caused a number of town events to be rescheduled including the planned fall 2012 paper shredding event. But if you still have that huge pile of papers in your possession and want to get rid of them without fear of identity theft, fear not.

The event has been postponed, not canceled. It will now take places on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is sponsored by The First Bank of Greenwich and Santaguida Sanitation and will be held in the Island Beach Parking Lot. You can enter across from Town Ferry Dock.

People are asked to shred only sensitive documents and papers. And people are responsible for removing all non-sensitive papers, file folders, envelopes, plastic bindings and covers beforehand. They can recycle these with the town’s single stream recycling.

The cost for shredding is $1 per box with a maximum five boxes. A “box size” is considered similar to 10-ream case, 12”x18”x12”. Documents will be shredded on-site by Confidential Shredding LLC.

Shredding is considered the safest way to protect from identity theft and consumer fraud. Papers that should be shredded include financial statements, legal, estate and tax documents, medical records and Social Security information.

This is an America Recycles Day 2012 event organized by the Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Greenwich Green & Clean.
