Community shred day set for April 7

By Kim Walter -- kwalter@nvdaily.com

FRONT ROYAL -- Community residents are invited to bring their personal documents in for shredding on April 7 at the Royal Plaza Shopping Center.

The event is free, and will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Janice Hart, community relations specialist for the Front Royal Police Department, is in charge of the event and has been since its beginning five years ago. In the past two years, residents have shredded over 17,000 pounds of paper, she said.

Dominion Document Shredding will provide a truck and shredders, as well as personnel from the company to answer any questions.

Hart explained that the event is something residents need to plan for.

"People need to clean out for a shredding day," she said. "This being tax time, it's the time of year that people clean out from years of stored information that they no longer need but need to dispose of properly."

Things like old records, financial statements and receipts are all documents that people tend to bring for shredding, Hart said.

"But even junk mail can harm you and cause you to become a victim of identity theft," Hart said, and added that she no longer simply rips things in half and throws them in the recycling. "It's important to shred everything."

Volunteers with the police department will also be on hand to help unload materials that citizens want shredded. Hart said that people can also watch the destruction of their documents.

"Instead of putting all that paper in a land fill, the shredded paper is recycled into things like benches and other products," Hart said, offering a reason to attend the event, which will be held rain or shine.

For more information on Free Shredding Day, contact Hart at 631-2763.
