MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) –
The Montgomery Clean City Commission, MAX Credit Union, AARP Alabama, Gilmore Services and Walmart #4691 are offering free on-site document destruction for residents in Montgomery.
Residents are encouraged to bring up to five bags or boxes of old personal information to a mobile shredding truck that will be located in the south parking lot of Garrett Coliseum. The free shredding event is Dec. 2nd from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the south parking lot of Garrett Coliseum at 1555 Federal Drive.
The event is intended for private residential document shredding, not for business or company disposal. There is no need for advance document sorting. The shredding equipment can destroy paperwork with paper clips, staples or rubber bands attached.
Gilmore Services, who is an active participant of the event, guarantees all confidential records are disposed of properly, and all paper shredded will be recycled.
Residents are encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food to donate to the Montgomery Area Food Bank.
Montgomery City Councilman, Richard Bollinger, is sponsoring the event. He says the event is open to the public to help prevent identity theft.
