On June 29th from 10:00AM-1:00PM, The Shred Authority will have a mobile shredding unit stationed onsite to shred: unbound papers (stapled and paper clipped documents are acceptable), credit cards, identification cards, and loose (i.e., not in cases) CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs.

For the courtesy of others, we ask that everyone limit their shredding materials to no more than two full boxes so that everyone has a chance to go through the line. The event is scheduled to run for three hours, but is first come, first serve and will only last until the truck is full.
