Shred Event Yields 4 Tons of Destroyed Documents

Free event draws over 100 participants

 

February 4, 2012- Arnold, MD --Over 100 people bringing boxes, bins and bags of documents tallied 4 tons of recyclable shredded paper at a free shredding event sponsored by KD SpaceLifts, a professional organizing service in Arnold.

 

Saturday’s Shred-A-Thon, held on Broadwater Road in Arnold, was the first time SpaceLifts had sponsored a shredding event.  While document shredding can protect private information from identity theft, it also clears a path for better organization.

 

"Everyone I spoke with was so relieved to be rid of the paper clutter,” said owner Kathleen “KD” Durham. “Piles of old documents can become a real physical and mental block.”

 

Document destruction was provided by The Shred Mill, an Anne Arundel County-based business. Owner Peggy Rogers said the shredding process from this event took 6 hours.

 

“This was the largest, most successful shred event we’ve done in our four years of operation.” 

 

At Saturday’s event, documents could be left for shredding or participants could wait in line to witness their material being destroyed.

 

Pete Regala of Arnold was one of many participants hauling boxes of old business documents in need of disposal. He and son Peter emptied their papers into a bin beside the Shred Mill truck housing an industrial shredding machine.  Rogers said participants typically bring financial papers, old school work and personal correspondence.   

 

The Shred-A-Thon success had SpaceLifts owner looking into the future. 

 

“We met so many wonderful people,” KD said. “I am thrilled with the response and will definitely sponsor this type of event again."
