Alpharetta Hosting Free Secure Document Shredding Event

Released April 01, 2019 03:43 PM
City of Alpharetta residents that need to safely discard bank statements, medical history papers, and other documents containing confidential information are invited to take advantage of a free document shredding event on Saturday, April 27, 2019.  The event will be held from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM at the Alpharetta Department of Public Works located at 1790 Hembree Road.  There is a five-box limit per household, and the event will end sooner if the shredding truck is filled.

The event is being held in conjunction with an Electronics Recycling Event that will take place at the same time and place.

This shredding and recycling collection will offer residents and small businesses the opportunity to safely discard confidential documents using a mobile, on-site shredding truck.  Residents can watch their documents being shredded and have comfort knowing that the shredded materials will be recycled without risk of their confidential information falling into the wrong hands.

The Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission is requesting that participants enhance this act of “giving back” by bringing one can of food per box brought for shredding.  All collected food items will be dispersed to neighbors through the North Fulton Community Charities Food Bank.

For more information about this event, please contact Terry Porter at (678) 297-6213 or
