Complimentary shredding day takes Place this Month

The Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller wants to help community members clean out old paperwork.  The Clerk’s office is sponsoring a complimentary shredding day for Manatee County residents on Saturday, April 17.

Individuals will have the opportunity to guard against identity theft and spring clean their personal and confidential documents through ShredQuick, a professional shredding company that provides services to the Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court.  This complementary service is not available to businesses.

There is no cost for this service. The limit for each family is two standard-sized bankers’ boxes, which are 12 inches by 10 inches by 15 inches in size. No drop-offs will be accepted, and all participants must remain in line with their documents until their documents are placed into a shredding bin to be shredded.

Acceptable items for disposal include any color or type of paper and documents, such as financial statements, social security records, bank records, pay stubs, checks, tax returns, utility bills, credit card statements, medical information, legal documents, plastic credit and ID cards and other personal documents that contain sensitive personal information. Paper clips, staples, rubber bands, labels and file tabs do not need to be removed.

Items that cannot be shredded at this event include binders, CDs, thumb drives, hard drives, plastics, magnetic or optical media, floppy discs, carbon paper, cardboard, plastic sheet protectors and X-rays. Junk mail, magazines and newspapers will also not be accepted.
