South Florida Shred-a-Thon
Weâ€™ve been accumulating papers for over 5 years to one day shred it all away. I first bought a shredder and it broke trying a handful of papers. I then bought an outdoor chimenea to burn all the papers, but that wasnâ€™t very environmentalist of me and wind up not burning anything. As the years passed by, the papers accumulated to a tall trash can stored in our home.
So finally the time came to move to a smaller place and give up the garage that stored it all. I was looking for a service to pay to shred all my important data and found that BSO, Broward Sheriff Office, was having a FREE shredding event every month on the second Saturday of the month.
We took 7 full boxes of receipts, credit card statements that were at least three years old! I had cdâ€™s and old expired credit cards tooâ€¦ you name it, they took it! They shred everything in front of you in a truck… it was awesome!
I’ve managed to accumulate a whole box now, so I’m taking it tomorrow.
If you are a South Florida/Broward resident, you should take advantage of this free event. For more information, see the BSO site.
