Spring Cleaning with The House – April 21, 2018


Celebrate the end of tax season and join us for coffee, donuts, and the secure shredding of your private documents! On April 21 from 9 am to 12pm, bring as much material as you have and enjoy peace of mind as the professionals at Wiggin’s Shredding carefully handle your documents.

For a donation, the shredding will be performed in a Wiggin’s Shredding customized mobile shredding truck. The process involves taking the sensitive documents and putting them into bins; the truck then lifts them up and dumps them into the shredder to be destroyed.

You’re able to watch the shredding process via video. The documents will be shredded by a pierce and tear method. All material will come out of the shredder in pieces no larger than a fingernail. This is the most secure method. Once everything has been destroyed, you will be issued a certificate of destruction for your records. Everything will then be properly recycled. The length of the entire process varies depending on how much material you have.

Thanks to our sponsors Kimberton Whole Foods and Wiggin’s Shredding for supporting our cause and making this event possible.
