Have you been holding onto a bunch of outdated documents because you’re worried about potential theft of financial, medical or other private information? Well, here’s your chance to finally get that stuff out of the shoe boxes or various piles around your house.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, you can bring it all to the East Hampton Library at 105 Main St., and have it professionally shredded.
It’s a free service – if you make a donation of nonperishable food (or cash) to the East Hampton Food Bank. (Click this link http://www.easthamptonct.gov/pages/EastHamptonCT_Food/index for a list of needed items.)
This your opportunity to safely dispose of bank statements that are no longer needed for tax returns or other financial records, old cancelled checks, credit card statements or medical records – anything you want to keep private.
A Shred-It® truck will be located in the upper lot of the Community Center complex. (Click here to read more about the company doing the shredding.)
Questions? Call the East Hampton Library at 860-267-6621.
