Shredding Day - Read All About It!
Admit it. You have them. They lurk — in the attic, under the bed, in the back of the closet, under the stairs, in the basement and garage — yes, old pay stubs, checks, bank statements, doctors’ bills, insurance reports and financial statements of all sorts. They contain sensitive information — Social Security and account numbers, date of birth and address — and there may be years’ worth from before the dawn of online banking and bill paying. It could take seemingly forever to run them one by one through a home shredder.
Help is on the way. The Long Hill Township Library has two events for you.
The first is on Tuesday, Oct 22 at 7pm called Protect Your Identity - What to Keep and What to Toss. You’ll find out how long to save financial and tax records, what documents can be recycled or needed to be shredded, and how to safely store your documents in this time of identify theft. This program is being presented by Claudia Mott, CFP, CDFA & Mary Sunderland, CFA, CFP, IRS Enrolled Agent.
The second event is Long Hill LIbrary’s Shredding Day for the Community on Saturday, Nov 2 from 9am to Noon. A shredding truck from Security Shredding will be in the library’s parking lot from 9am til Noon to shred your papers.
Shredding Day is a fund-raiser for the library. The Shredding fees are $5 per grocery bag, $10 per box, and $35 per 30 gallon garbage bag. It’s an opportunity for you to securely dispose of your confidential and personal documents. The Security Shredding truck uses the latest state of the art equipment and shreds documents while you watch. Security Shredding is licensed, fully bonded and insured. You drive in, unload your papers and drive out with peace of mind.
