Community Shred Day Event set for April 30

By Staff | Mar 30, 2021

Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., P.A. will partner with Secure Shredding, Inc. to host its fifth annual free Community Shred Day event on Friday, April 30, from 9 a.m. until noon. The Secure Shredding, Inc. truck will be on site at the Fort Myers MNMW location, 8961 Conference Drive. There will be a two-box maximum per person for shredding.

This is a free event, however, MNMW encourages participants to consider a donation to the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties when dropping off shred items. Donations for United Way can be in monetary form, canned or non-perishable goods, or new/gently used clothing. A representative from United Way will be on site to receive the donations and answer questions.

“Our annual Shred Day gains more and more traction each year. We have clients and people in the community calling all year round to find out when they can securely dispose of their old documents and papers safely,” said Julio Barina, CPA, and Partner at MNMW. “By offering this free service, we hope to provide awareness and support to the United Way and its partner agencies.”

Items that can be shredded are bank statements, tax records, contracts, blank checks, etc. A good rule to determine if an item is “shreddable” is “if it tears, it can be destroyed.” Items NOT suitable for shredding include hard drives, cell phones, batteries, etc. All shredded material will be recycled to support an eco-friendly environment.
