Hendersonville is sponsoring Nov. 28 ‘Shred Day’

Here’s the press release from the city of Hendersonville:

The City of Hendersonville will sponsor a secure, Shred Day for City residents on Wednesday, November 28, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., in the parking lot of Patton Park, 59 E. Clairmont Drive. American Security Shredding, Inc, will have their shredding truck in the parking lot for two hours to allow residents to dispose of sensitive materials. Residents of Hendersonville are invited to bring up to two boxes (or 50 lbs.) of paper items to be shredded. Suggested items to shred are financial statements, cancelled checks, credit card statements, payroll stubs, insurance forms, old tax returns, forms from doctor’s offices, etc. The public can simply drop their documents off or stay and watch their documents destroyed. The event will happen rain or shine. If the shredding truck fills up before 11:00, the event will be over.

To make this part of a community outreach effort, the City is asking that residents coming to the event bring items to donate to the Storehouse and IAM. Both agencies are in need to help their clients during this season. Suggested items are canned fruits & vegetables, canned chili & beef stew, stuffing mix, and canned hams.
