ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — There’s a pretty good chance you have a stack of papers piling up at home with confidential information on them, like your social security number or bank account information, and you’re looking for a safe way to get rid of them.
OCRRA is offering you a chance to get rid of those documents on Saturday at its Summer Shred-O-Rama event. It will be held on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Brown Parking Lot of the New York State Fairgrounds.
The event is free, fast and easy. OCRRA says to make sure they are personal documents, not business records.
“You pull up in your vehicle and you don’t even have to get out, we’ll unload the car for you or truck. We just say please bring us only five boxes of material, so about 150-pounds, so we can shred it for you right there so you see it done before your eyes. It really doesn’t take very long at all,” said Kristen Lawton, Public Information Officer for OCRRA.
The shredded material ends up being sold to a company that uses it for making toilet paper and napkins. The event is sponsored by OCRRA and the office of New York State Assemblyman William Magnarelli.
