WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport will conduct its eighth annual community shred day from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 4 at 180 Bayberry Lane (the Westport/Weston Health District).
Residents may shred up to eight paper bags (bags recycle, too), or three boxes (12 inches by 18 inches) per household.
Each car will be charged $5. Proof of Westport residency is required. Volunteers from the Staples High School Service League of Boys will be on-site to assist.
“This is an opportunity for Westporters to dispose of personal, confidential and sensitive papers, such as bank statements, cancelled check, credit card statements, tax papers and medical records by watching their papers shredded on-site,” said First Selectman Jim Marpe. “Document shredding is safe, secure and confidential. This event helps insure protection against identity theft, in addition to spring cleaning file cabinets. Our environment also benefits since all material will be recycled.”
