9th District residents have the opportunity to shred any personal or confidential documents they would like to get rid of thanks to Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh in partnership with Shred-It. The best thing about the service is it’s FREE.
“My office has partnered with Shred-It, a local company that has become very well known for its professionalism in handling sensitive documents,” says Ward-Pugh. “Shred-It will offer this free service to anyone who would like to dispose of personal documents they no longer need.”
The 9th District Shredding event will be held on Saturday, May 14 from 8:30am to 12:00pm. It will take place at the Crescent Hill Library rear parking lot, off Frankfort Avenue. Louisville Metro Police will also be handing out information on how to protect yourself from identify theft.
There is no limit on the amount of material residents may bring. Items that can be brought for shredding include documents, discs, hard drives, credit cards and other confidential materials. All paper materials will be shredded on site and recycled to make materials such as compost, tissues and toilet paper. Residents will be able to drive through and drop off materials without getting out of their car.
Businesses will not be allowed to participate in this event.
“I know there are many people who are concerned about identity theft and shredding is one of the best ways to discard these materials,” says Ward-Pugh.
A few volunteers are still to help collect boxes/bags from vehicles to be shredded.
If you are available for one, two or more hours please contact Councilwoman Ward-Pugh’s office at 574-1109 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up.
