FREE Shred Day for Montgomery County Residents - April 9

MONCO Enterprises, a not-for-profit organization that provides employment for individuals with developmental disabilities, will offer Montgomery County residents the opportunity to use its Secure Document Destruction Service free of charge in early April.

MONCO’s Free Shred Day allows residents to dispose of personal documents safely and securely, thereby reducing opportunities for identity theft. Residential consumers may bring personal documents, old tax information and confidential papers to MONCO’s NAID (National Association for Information Destruction), AAA-certified Shredding Operations Center at 700 Liberty Lane, Dayton, 45449, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, 2016. The building, visible from Interstate 75, is located immediately behind the West Carrollton YMCA.

Residents are limited to a 10 box/bag maximum. No businesses, please.

The MONCO Secure Document Destruction Center is among a number of programs operated by the organization that offer individuals with disabilities the opportunity to serve the community, learn job skills, and earn a paycheck. In this program, individuals use high-speed industrial shredders to securely shred thousands of pounds of documents per hour. MONCO then sells the shredded paper to an approved reprocessing business, where it is recycled.

Questions concerning the event may be directed to Charles Quinn, MONCO production supervisor, at (937) 247-2405. Additional information is available at www.moncoenterprises.com or at www.mcbdds.org.
