Free Document Shredding Available for Fayetteville Residents on Saturday, April 2
The City of Fayetteville is providing a free shredding service for the destruction and recycling of documents on Saturday, April 2, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., at the Recycling and Trash Collection Division located at 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road in Fayetteville. This event will be in conjunction with the Ward 3 Bulky Waste Clean-Up scheduled on Saturday, April 2.
The public is invited to participate in this service for proper destruction of secure documents and to help protect against identity theft. The Arkansas Attorney General’s Office advises “Don’t let ‘one man’s trash become an identity thief’s treasure.’ Shred or otherwise destroy any statements, documents, or records, which contain personal information after they are no longer needed.” While many residents and businesses do not have a shredder, this free service offers something that can help many people in Fayetteville while also providing assurance that such shredded paper will be recycled. Even if you do own a shredder, this opportunity offers large-scale shredding with the use of a shredding van to serve our community.
Please plan on attending and utilizing this free service provided by the City of Fayetteville offered at the Recycling and Trash Collection facility located at 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road on Saturday, April 2, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.. There will be a limit of five copy paper size boxes per resident for this event.
