Shred It EventPaper Shredding Event
Monday, Nov. 15 ~ Noon-6 pm - or until the two trucks are full
Renaissance Centre parking lot, 405 S. Brooks St.

Free and open to the public, the shred event will take place rain or shine in the parking lot of the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St., from noon to 6 p.m. – or until the two paper shredding trucks are full. The occasion will offer area residents and businesses the opportunity to protect themselves from identity theft and dispose of confidential documents in an environmentally responsible manner.

Residents will drive up to the shredding point, then unload their boxes and bags of paper for shredding.  

Please note: The paper will be shredded onsite.

The shredded paper will be recycled, so every effort is being made to reduce contamination.

Participants are urged to help reduce contamination by removing all non-paper materials in advance, such as plastic binders, plastic folders and metal tabs. In addition, items that can damage the equipment will not be accepted, such as wet or moist paper, hanging file folders, books (hardback or paperback), credit cards, photographs, film, DVD’s and other metals (other than staples or paper clips), boxes, batteries, computer disks or other electronic media. Please note: Junk mail does not need to be shredded. Residents and businesses can recycle junk mail in their Town-issued recycling cart.
