And, hey… make sure you wash your hands! It's not necessarily about you, but about others who may be at risk. Thanks! :)
Community Shred Event Protects You and the Environment
While everyone knows that we should protect ourselves from cyber identity theft it’s easy to forget that the threat of “paper” identity theft is still very real. Are you now wondering what to do with all those important papers that are now out of date and no longer needed?
Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (12513 SE Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver) will be hosting a shred day event on Saturday, February 15, 2020, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Your sensitive documents and papers will be securely shredded and recycled on-site. Limit 2 banker boxes per person. A $5.00 suggested donation goes to the Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church’s annual Mexico Mission Trip.
Wondering how long you should keep documents? Depends on the documents. Click here for guidelines from Consumer Reports. And, shredding those documents aren’t only good for your safety, it’s good for the environment.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), each recycled ton of paper fiber saves:
3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
360 gallons of water
100 gallons of gasoline
60 pounds of pollutants
10,400 kilowatts of electricity
If the document does not have any personal or secure information, you can recycle it in your curbside mixed recycling without shredding.
