He also pointed out that all the documents are shredded and recycled “we urge the community to participate, bring their documents, we request that they come with their masks and on the other hand it will not be necessary for those who come to leave their respective vehicles”, he said.
It was learned that in this opportunity up to two boxes of paper, file folders, staples, rubber bands, paper or folder clips will be shredded.
“Cardboard, plastic, metals, three-ring binders, CDs, DVDs, common garbage, as well as materials considered hazardous, may not be brought for shredding,” she reiterated.
The interviewee explained that it is more convenient to bring the documents for shredding than to break them and throw them in the garbage, “the idea is to shred, recycle, and above all to gain in security in our fight against identity theft”, she added.
