Where Can I Shred My Papers for Free?

Shred Event

Community shredding events are something that really do make neighborhoods safer. Once your trash hits the sidewalk, it’s public domain—and you run the risk of identity thieves getting your information and using it against you.

Shredding your documents securely is one of the best ways to prevent Identity theft, and these types of events give you the opportunity to collect old documents and get rid of them for free without having to worry about using a drop off center or hiring a mobile shredding truck yourself.

Why Companies Hold Free Shredding Events

Why Companies Hold Free Shredding Events

Interested In Sponsoring or Having a Shredding Event?


Here are some things to think about when you’re considering holding a shredding event for your community:

Who is sponsoring the shredding event and what is their end goal?  

There’s a big difference between an event sponsored by a business versus one put on by a local little league team for fundraising.

Businesses have more means to be able to reach out to the public and create buzz around the event. The baseball team might have the desire, but there’s only so many boxes of paper their parents and immediate family have to shred—and they probably don’t have an advertising budget.

What are the economics of the event?

Are you going to have the event sponsored so it’s free; have the people participating pay a small fee to use the mobile shredding truck; or can you offer your services to a non-profit organization as a way to give back to the community?

Where is the event located?

Think about the logistics of the event up front:

It’s also important to consider the time of year that you want to hold the event. It might be better to hold it in the summer rather than the spring or the fall due to rain (or snow).

One of the things you always need to consider is how to get people to the event. The more you plan, the better chance you have of a successful event.

How long is the event scheduled for ?

Make sure that both you and the shredding company have a clear idea of the time-frame and limitations (if any) for the event. Some events last all day, while some communities prefer to have it done by mid-afternoon. Communicate clearly and make sure that you have all expectations worked out ahead of time.

If You Are Looking to Plan a Community Shred Event, Shred Nations can Help!

Shredding events are a great chance to give a service that’s overlooked to your community. It gives you a chance to spread knowledge of how to prevent identity theft and really explain the importance of secure destruction.

Shredding events are also a great opportunity for a local shredding company. It gives them a chance to create brand awareness by being in front of new potential customers in their community, and connect with businesses and residents that might have a need for secure shredding services in the future.

If you want to plan or host a shredding event, we’ll make it easy for you.  Just fill out the form to the right , or give Shred Nations a call at (800) 747-3365.
