Find Shred Events Near You

A shredding event allows community members to safely dispose of their personal files in a safe and convenient way. With shred events, a mobile shred truck is stationed at a central location for community members to access for a small fee, a donation, or for free. 

Who hosts a shredding event depends on your location. In many counties or cities, local governments organize shred events. These typically are annual, which, depending on your needs, may not be convenient for you. For example, Jefferson County, where Shred Nations is headquartered, is hosting their annual shred-a-thon on Saturday, May 20th, 2023.

 

However, if your city or county doesn’t host a shredding event, or if the date doesn’t work for you, there are still other options. AARP often conducts shred events around the country, and one of those might work. Alternatively, you can be the shredding hero for your local community, and organize your own community shred event.

How to Host a Shred Event

Choose a Location:

Choose a central location that’s easy for everyone in your community to get to, including the elderly and those with mobility challenges. A school, church, or even a local park all serve as great places. 

Coordinate with a Shredder:

Unless you happen to have an extra shred truck parked in your backyard, you’ll need to coordinate with a shredder. ShredNations partners with a network of providers across the country, and we can connect you to one that fits your needs. 

Recruit Volunteers: 

You’ll need greeters, promoters, and coordinators, so be sure to ask friends, family, employees, and other community members. 

Promote Your Event:

 

Once you finish all that preparation, you need to get the word out. Word of mouth and social media are a great starting point. You can also reach out to local news organizations or community organizations and ask them to promote it as well.

Benefits of Document Shredding

Increase Efficiency

Physical documents take up space in your home or office. Shredding them as a means of disposal is a secure, simple way to eliminate data and clean up a space. Shredding documents one-by-one in an at-home or office shredder is tedious. Having an employee do this puts you at risk for information leaks and violation of compliance standards. Rent a shredder today to keep yourself safe and efficient.

Take Control of Your Data

Renting an industrial shredder allows you to take control of your sensitive data. By actively managing your document disposal, you significantly reduce the risk of identity theft, fraud, and data breaches. Take advantage of the convenience, security, and environmental benefits of renting an industrial shredder. Get started today by requesting a free quote.
