Davis residents can clean out their home offices and come to a free document shredding event on Saturday, Nov. 12, courtesy of Davis Waste Removal, which contracts with the city for all of Davis’ garbage, recycling and green waste removal.
Davis Waste Removal is celebrating National Recycling Week by partnering with Absolute Secured Shredding of Sacramento to offer the service to residential customers from 9 a.m. to noon at the Davis Waste Removal office, 2727 Second St., Davis.
The limit is four 11-by-14-inch file boxes or an equivalent amount. Customers may drop off their material or watch it be shredded.
“What a great way to celebrate National Recycling Week while also giving local residents the chance to clean up their homes and get organized for the holidays,” Paul Hart, Davis Waste Removal president, said in a news release.
Experts recommend that residents shred all materials that could pose a risk of identity theft, including credit card offers, receipts, bills and bank statements. Once shredded, documents will be recycled, providing an environmentally friendly method for disposing of sensitive materials.
Davis Waste Removal serves the waste and recycling needs of the city of Davis and other customers. Services include residential and commercial garbage pickup, recycling, green waste, street sweeping and debris box services.
