Community Shred Day

Celebrate the end of tax season!

Classified Scanning & Shredding is offering free document shredding on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 from 10:00am to 2:00pm  at 425 Paul Road in Chili.

Document shredding protects you and your family from one of America’s fastest growing crimes – identity theft.  When personal documents fall into the wrong hands, they can be used for fraudulent purposes.  Identity theft victims can spend years and thousands of dollars trying to clean up their credit record.

Your documents will be inserted into locked containers, shredded and sent to a paper mill for recycling, protecting your family and the environment at the same time.

Limit three boxes per person, please.  No appointment necessary.
