When is the next Community Shredding Event?

Over time, unused documents like medical records, credit card statements, and bills can build up in your home or office and pose a serious security threat. Ensuring that all of these items are properly disposed of by using document shredding will prevent this personal information from falling into the wrong hands. But what’s the best way to take care of that? Attend a Community Shred Event hosted by  PROSHRED® Baltimore.

Want to host a Shred Event near You?

Hosting a public shredding event demonstrates your commitment to the Baltimore community by allowing people to securely dispose of their private materials. If you are a business or organization, it can also be an excellent way to advertise yourself to new customers or donors.

Hosting a shredding event is easy.

  • First, select a location that can accommodate a crowd, such as a parking lot.
  • Next, schedule your shredding service for that day.
  • Thirdly, decide whether the shredding services will cost a small fee or donation or be free.
  • Finally, promote the event where the right people will see it, such as on your website or social media.
