Shred Days Cancelled in 2021
Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, it will not be possible to ensure the safety of our employees and customers while hosting Shred Days. For this reason, we will not be scheduling shred events during 2021. Please stay tuned to our website and follow us on Facebook for any future updates.
We understand that cancellation of these events does not change the need for shredding services; customers are encouraged to continue shredding sensitive documents for their safety. Below is a short list of resources* customers may consider to fill this need:
- C.O.P.S. Paper Shredding & Media Disposal
- The UPS Store
- Office Depot/Office Max
