The Rotary Club of Grand Island will present its annual “Shred-it!” event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 25, behind KeyBank in the Tops Market Plaza Parking lot on Grand Island Boulevard. Patrons will be able to watch the confidential document destruction of their papers via drive-thru, in-vehicle service.
The cost is $10 for a box approximately 12-by-16-by-10 inches, or $20 for a double banker box. Participants are asked to follow guidelines for secure document destruction by removing metal and plastic binders. Staples and paper clips will be accepted. Only paper items that would qualify for curbside recycling are allowed.
Those with more than six large boxes should call 716-773-7265 for accommodations.
The funds raised at this event are used by Rotary Club to support various community causes
Organizers said, “How long should important documents be kept? Keep for seven years if they include any items related to the preparation of your personal or business tax returns. Otherwise, documents that could be shredded after three years would include credit card statements and receipts, monthly bank statements, deposit and ATM slips, cancelled checks and utility statements.”
This event is co-sponsored with Christine A. Learman, CPA, PC; and Madison Tile Carpet One. For more information, visit www.rotaryclubgi.org or check out the Facebook group rotaryclubgi.
