We’ve been accumulating papers for over 5 years to one day shred it all away. I first bought a shredder and it broke trying a handful of papers. I then bought an outdoor chimenea to burn all the papers, but that wasn’t very environmentalist of me and wind up not burning anything. As the years passed by, the papers accumulated to a tall trash can stored in our home.
So finally the time came to move to a smaller place and give up the garage that stored it all. I was looking for a service to pay to shred all my important data and found that BSO, Broward Sheriff Office, was having a FREE shredding event every month on the second Saturday of the month.
We took 7 full boxes of receipts, credit card statements that were at least three years old! I had cd’s and old expired credit cards too… you name it, they took it! They shred everything in front of you in a truck… it was awesome!
I’ve managed to accumulate a whole box now, so I’m taking it tomorrow.
If you are a South Florida/Broward resident, you should take advantage of this free event. For more information, see the BSO site.
