Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is hosting a free document shredding event for the Sonoma County community on Saturday, August 4, 2018 from 9 a.m. to noon at their administrative offices at 3033 Cleveland Avenue in Santa Rosa. The popular Shred-a-Thon event will feature free document shredding provided by Shred-It and electronic waste (e-waste) collection by Conservation Corps North Bay.
Attendees may bring up to three banker-sized boxes (15”x12”x10”) of confidential documents for shredding, such as old financial statements, canceled checks, and credit card offers. E-waste recycling services will also be available for attendees to dispose of old computers, monitors, printers, cell phones, and other personal electronics.
“People come to us with sensitive documents that, in many cases, they’ve been storing for years and aren’t sure how to dispose of them safely,” said Matt Martin, RCU’s vice president of community and government relations. “It’s so rewarding to watch our members and employees and our communities drive out of the parking lot, knowing we’ve taken care of their best interests.”
Food and monetary donations will also be accepted at the event to benefit Redwood Empire Food Bank, a local nonprofit committed to making adequate nutrition assistance available and accessible to those who need it in Sonoma County.
