Alpharetta hosts document shredding event



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – City of Alpharetta residents that need to safely discard bank statements, medical history papers and other documents containing confidential information are invited to take advantage of a free document shredding event on Saturday, May 3. The event will be held in the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety parking lot, 2565 Old Milton Pkwy., from 9 a.m. until noon (or earlier if the truck is full). There is a five box limit per resident.

Eco Shredding, the city’s partner on this event, will offer residents and small businesses the opportunity to safely discard confidential documents using a mobile, on-site shredding truck. Residents can watch their documents being shredded and have comfort knowing that the shredded materials will be recycled without risk of their confidential information falling into the wrong hands.

To shred more than five boxes, contact Peg Hussing with Eco Shredding to make other arrangements at 770-490-5607.

Eco Shredding is investing in the community by offering this service and is requesting that participants enhance this act of “giving back” by bringing one can of food per box brought for shredding. All collected food items will be dispersed to neighbors through the North Fulton Community Charities Food Bank.

This event is being held in conjunction with a computer and electronics recycling collection at this location from 9 a.m. to noon.
