On April 16, the Texas Better Business Bureau will host free paper shredding and recycling around the state. Locations include Austin, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. This is a great way to securely shred all of those old tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs and other sensitive paper documents. Each car can bring up to five boxes of documents to shred.
The free shredding and recycling will be held at the Dell campus in Round Rock. You can find the other locations on the BBB website. The Austin location will also take old computers and computer parts for recycling by the Goodwill organization. You can also bring old cell phones that need to be recycled.
Over 140,000 pounds (70 tons) of paper were shredded at the last shred day. I can tell you from experience with secure shredding of the business cards we process at CloudContacts that shredding isn’t cheap. If you have paper for shredding, make the trip up to Round Rock and clear out those filing cabinets. While you are up in Round Rock, you might stop for what some call the best donut in Texas at Round Rock donuts.
If you aren’t located in any of the cities above, check out Shred-It’s list of other free shredding community events around the U.S. There are about 30 other cities holding free paper shredding events this weekend.
