MICKLETON — Let’s get ready to shred at the East Greenwich Shred Event, Oct.15.
Sponsored by The East Greenwich Twp. Environmental Commission and Green Team in cooperation with the Board of County Commissioners, the open shredding event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Municipal Building, 159 Democrat Road in Mickleton.
Reduce clutter and clean out and purge your personal records. Protect yourself from identity theft while being green. What to toss: bills once payment has cleared your account; bank and credit card statements once they are reconciled. With online banking these statements are available on the institution’s website. Investment statements if you can easily get a copy from your broker or advisor.
What to keep: Tax returns and all documentation for seven years; all documentation of real estate purchases as well as documentation of improvements to the property for as long as you own the property.
Bring your bags and boxes of paper to be shredded. An experienced operator form DocuVault will move the disposal bins to a highly secure, mobile shredding unit where your confidential material will be destroyed as you watch. One hundred percent of the shredded paper is recycled.
Only paper from residents will be accepted. No businesses. Please, no plastic bags or metal including 3-ring binders and binder clips. Staples and paper clips are acceptable.
Electronics will also be accepted for recycling but no TVs larger than 60 inch. If you remove hard drives from computers, they may be able to provide onsite destruction, depending on DocuVault’s truck. For more information contact Summer Keegan at email@example.com
