WESTPORT, Conn. – Westport will hold its seventh annual community shred day on Saturday, May 9.
Each household may shred up to eight paper bags with documents, or three boxes no larger than 12 inches by 18 inches each.
“This is an opportunity for Westporters to dispose of personal, confidential and sensitive papers, such as bank statements, canceled checks, credit card statements, tax papers, and medical records by watching their papers shredded on-site,” First Selectman Jim Marpe said in a press release.
“Document shredding is safe, secure, and confidential. This event helps insure protection against identity theft, in addition to spring-cleaning file cabinets. Our environment also benefits since all material will be recycled.”
Participants must have proof of Westport residency, and each car will be charged $5.
Volunteers from the Staples High School Service League of Boys will be assisting people on-site as needed.
The community shred day will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Westport/Weston Health District, 180 Bayberry Lane, Westport.
