The next Community Shred Days are set for September at the following Veridian branches:

Saturday, September 30

From 9 a.m. to noon, On-site Information Destruction will provide on-site shredding services, and Goodwill Industries will collect unwanted computer equipment. While proceeds from recycling or refurbishing the unwanted computer equipment will benefit Goodwill’s job training programs, all shredded paper will be recycled into commercial-grade paper towels, toilet paper and other paper products. The event is free and open to the public, and each individual can bring up to two 25-pound containers of documents to shred. 

Secure shred bins will also be available inside six Veridian branches on select dates during regular business hours, including:
