City offers free document shredding on May 3

The city’s Recycling and Trash Collection Division will host a free document shredding service from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 3 at the Recycling and Trash Collection facility, located at 1560 S. Happy Hollow Road in Fayetteville.

Each resident will be limited to five copy paper sized boxes each.

For more information, contact Brian Pugh, Waste Reduction Coordinator, at 479-718-7685.

From a news release:

The public is invited to participate in this service for proper destruction of secure documents and to help protect against identity theft. The Arkansas Attorney General’s Office advises “Don’t let ‘one man’s trash become an identity thief’s treasure.’ Shred or otherwise destroy any statements, documents, or records, which contain personal information after they are no longer needed.” While many residents and businesses do not have a shredder, this free service offers something that can help many people in Fayetteville while also providing assurance that such shredded paper will be recycled. Even if you do own a shredder, this opportunity offers large-scale shredding with the use of a shredding van to serve our community.
