Do you have confidential, sensitive, private papers and documents that need to be shredded? Here is a great opportunity to dispose of old papers safely and for free!
Orange County Solid Waste Management and local law enforcement will host two free shred-a-thons in late October.
Both events are 10am to 2pm, and are for residents and small businesses in Orange County
The free shredding is limited to FOUR (4) boxes of documents.
Please only bring papers and documents that are truly confidential in nature including financial or medical records. If a piece of bulk mail contains financial information such as credit card application forms those should be included. Anything with your birth date, social security number, financial account number and information or any medical information are all considered private, confidential information that should be shredded for your protection.
A name and address alone do not constitute confidential information. non-confidential paper such as magazines, bulk mail, envelopes, brochures, and folders should be recycled separately in blue carts or at regular recycling drop-off sites.
Incidental tape and staples are OK, but please NO plastics, metals, digital media, or other non-paper items.
