Town to host document-shredding event for public
The Town of Stony Plain wants to help combat consumer fraud and identity theft in its community. To raise awareness and promote prevention, the Town is hosting a Community Shred-it® event, offering free paper-shredding services for residents.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, residents can bring their confidential documents to the Stony Plain Fire Hall (4908 – 51 Ave. - view map) between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., where they will be destroyed on-site, for free. Shred-it® trucks containing cutting-edge proprietary paper-shredding technology will dispose of your private papers – whether small business documents you no longer need, Federal tax returns from the ‘70s or personal papers – such as those secret love letters in that shoebox in the basement – that you want to destroy – safely and securely.
"We are glad for this opportunity to provide an event like this for our residents – at no additional cost to them,” says Mayor William Choy. “Not only does this service help protect residents, it allows them to dispose of superfluous paper appropriately and in a way that is safe for the environment. We expect a large turn-out and thank residents for their commitment to safety and the environment.”
While this service will be offered by the Town, the event will run in conjunction with the Household Hazardous Waste and E-Round-up, jointly sponsored by the Town, Parkland County and the Alberta Recycling Management Authority (ARMA).
Established in 1988, Shred-it® was one of the first paper-shredding companies in the world. Today, the company is a global leader, providing more than 150,000 customers with document-destruction services. The company provides a wide range of shredding services, including community Shred-it® events, which increase public knowledge of identity theft, thereby making the communities safer places to live.
