It’s time to shred!
Records manager Susan Soy is Library Services Manager at the Austin Public Library, and she knows how important it is to clear the clutter. “As a recovering workaholic who regularly attends WA recovery meetings here in Austin, I can attest to how freeing it is to clear the clutter, delve into the reasons we create clutter, and let it go!”
Shredding is the ideal way to dispose of personal records and protect yourself from identity theft.
Shred Day 2009 will be held 8am to 2pm on Saturday, April 18, in the Austin High School (1715 W Cesar Chavez) parking lot. The annual event is sponsored by the Association of Records Managers and Administrators and The City of Austin Solid Waste Services.
It’s free, and it’s easy as one-two-three.
Just drive up, throw a donation into to the Capital Area Food Bank jar, and let the volunteers toss your boxes in the shred trucks. You don’t even have to get out of the car!
You can bring up to five file boxes. And don’t forget your monetary donation for the Capital Area Food Bank.
(Note: no wet material, no plastics/binders, and no electronic media.)
