Shred it, then forget it! Don’t be a victim of identity theft. Shred documents you don’t need that contain sensitive information, like your Social Security number, date of birth, medical information, old tax documents or bank account numbers. Shred those unwanted credit card offers you get in the mail, too.
Friends of the Lorain Public Library, Inc. are sponsoring a free community Shred Day event in the Main Library''s parking lot, 351 W. Sixth Street, Lorain. Personal documents, confidential papers, etc. will be shred on-site for you at no charge using equipment provided by the Shredding Network of Wickliffe, Ohio. Please, only household paper will be accepted; no business waste.
Paper only is to be brought for shredding. All paper documents will be put into toters (large containers on wheels). The documents will then be loaded into a mobile shred truck and shredded on-site. The shreds will then be brought back to the Shredding Network facility the same day. All shreds are baled and shipped to paper mills where they will be pulped and turned back into usable paper products such as cardboard. Documents should not be bound. (NO BOOKS WILL BE ACCEPTED.) Pages should be removed from plastic folders, three-ring binders, etc. Do not include binders in your box of paper to be shredded. Please remove paper clips. Staples do not need to be removed from documents.
For more information, call the Main Library at 440-244-1192 or 1-800-322-READ, ext. 254.
