Community Shredding Day September 28th

This just in from a Northwestern District Attorney’s Office press release:

The Greenfield TRIAD/ “Seniors and Law Enforcement Together” (SALT) Council, in partnership with the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, Franklin Sheriff’s Office, and Pro-Shred, Inc. are sponsoring a “Community Shred Event” to be held on Saturday, Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Greenfield Guiding Grange Hall, 401 Chapman Street, Greenfield. This three (3) hour event will be open to all Franklin County community members.  This is for residential shredding not open to businesses.

Consumer fraud and identity thefts are on the rise.  Older adults are often targeted victims of identity theft, which is why the Greenfield S.A.L.T. Council wants to raise awareness and to promote prevention. We hope that the “Community Shred Event” will provide the community with a responsible way to dispose of sensitive documents.

Franklin County residents are welcome to bring as many boxes of documents as they would like. Documents such as old bills, credit card information, cancelled checks or any materials that may have personal  identifying information can be shredded. All documents will be shredded on-site.

PROSHRED®, a service-driven document destruction company solely dedicated to on-site paper shredding and is a secure, convenient and cost-effective method for destroying and recycling confidential documents and materials.

Please join us in putting a dent in identify theft! For further information you can call Chris Geffin at the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, 413-437-5747 or Karen McCormick at Greenfield TRIAD at 413-772-0306.
