UPS Store of New Bern hosts Free Shredding Day

UPS Store offers Free Shred Day

Laura Johnson caught up with Pat Drake, Co-owner of the UPS Store to learn more about their upcoming free shred day. Listen to Laura’s radio interview with Pat aired on New Bern News Talk Radio WNOS 97.1FM and 1450AM. You can also listen to the interview here:

It’s time to clear out those piles of paper! This will be there 3rd year offering a free shredding day to help our community eliminate paper clutter while protecting their personal information.

On Saturday, March 26th, from 10am – 1pm, you’re invited to bring anything confidential and/or sensitive and confidential like pay stubs, tax returns, employment records, etc. to The UPS Store at 1822 South Glenburnie Road (across the street from the Post Office).

All papers will be shredded onsite with secure shredding services provided by Iron Mountain, and all shredded materials will be recycled.

Anyone bringing paperwork to shred is asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to Religious Community Services Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry. They’re in need of pasta, canned fruit, canned spaghetti sauce, etc. Last year they collected 500+ pounds of food for RCS.

Pat said, “We’re providing a service free to those in our community and it’s nice for them to be able to give back a little bit to a non-profit”.

For more information about the Free Shred Day, call The UPS Store at 637-7500.
