Shredding Events in Spring 2014

It’s that time again! Paper shredding event season has begun. Here is a list of shredding events in the Delaware Valley this spring. Please contact me if you would like to add events or if you have corrections to these events. If you are planning to attend an event, it’s wise to check the website or call or e-mail to make sure the event isn’t canceled due to weather or other circumstances.

If you can't wait for an event, try drop-off shredding services from Staples, Office Depot, Wiggins, or Mail Source (Springfield) for about $1 per pound. (Thanks for the tip, Donna!) 

Happy shredding!
