Confidential paper shredding & hard drive destruction Saturday

Send a link to a friend

[October 08, 2012]  Are you worried about your personal information getting into the wrong hands? If so, bring your financial records, old tax returns and other sensitive household records to be shredded and destroyed in a secure and confidential manner at the Logan County Fairgrounds on Saturday morning. Hard drives will also be accepted for shredding. Proper disposal of sensitive information may prevent individuals in your household from becoming the victim of identity theft.

Hours will be from 9 a.m. to noon. Participants should enter the fairgrounds at the main gate.

The last glass recycling collection of the year will also be at the same time and location.

The State Bank of Lincoln and the Logan County Joint Solid Waste Agency are co-sponsoring the free program for on-site confidential paper shredding and hard drive destruction.

Participants will be limited to five bags or boxes of materials to be shredded and are asked to ensure that no plastic, glass, trash or non-paper items are brought to the collection. The hard drives must be removed from the computers before participants bring in the hard drives to be destroyed. Participants will be responsible for the disposal of bags and boxes brought to the collection.

People bringing in papers and hard drives will be able to watch the shredding and destruction via a camera located in the bed of the shredding truck. Participants should maintain possession of their materials until they are brought to the truck for shredding. Sponsors of the paper shredding and hard drive destruction are not responsible for any materials left unattended prior to or during the shredding event.
