Free shredding available to Montgomery residents Nov. 8 at Garrett Coliseum
MONTGOMERY – The City of Montgomery’s Neighborhood Services Department, MAX Credit Union and Gilmore Services will offer free on-site document destruction and shredding for Montgomery residents at Garrett Coliseum’s North Parking Lot, 1555 Federal Drive, on Friday, November 8 from 7 a.m. until noon.
The event, also sponsored by City Council members Charles Jinright and Richard Bollinger, is open to all Montgomery residents and intended for private residential document shredding, not business disposal. Participants can bring up to two bags or boxes of old personal information to mobile shredding trucks. The two bag/box limit will be strictly enforced to keep the flow of traffic moving. No advance document sorting is necessary as shredding equipment can destroy paperwork with paper clips, staples or rubber bands attached.
Event participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or a monetary donation to benefit the Montgomery Area Food Bank. More than 1,200 residents took advantage a similar event in April, generously donating the equivalent of 20,454 pounds of food to the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
Gilmore Services (www.gilmoreservices.com) guarantees all confidential records are disposed of properly. All shredded paper will be recycled. For more information, call Neighborhood Services at (334) 625-2175 or visit www.mgmc3.com.
