Manatee Clerk helped residents protect their personal information at recent shredding event

The Office of Angelina “Angel” Colonneso, Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller for Manatee County, recently held their biannual Clerk Community Shred Day spring event on Saturday, April 20, at the Manatee County Fairgrounds.

Clerk Angel Colonneso and staff, along with Palmetto High School Key Club volunteers, assisted over 200 people to shred more than 2,000 pounds of sensitive documents during the event.

The Clerk’s Community Shred Day is a twice-yearly event that serves a crucial purpose—safeguarding personal information.

Manatee County residents were invited to bring up to two bankers box size worth of personal documents to be shredded, as well as recycle old electronics and hard drives for free.

"In today's digital age, protecting sensitive data is paramount,” said Angel Colonneso, Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller for Manatee County. “As Clerk, it is a privilege to provide residents a safe and accessible way to protect themselves from identity theft.”

The next Community Shred Day is scheduled for Saturday, November 16, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. at Manatee Technical College located at 6305 SR 70 E, Bradenton, FL 34203. The November event will offer document shredding only.
