Do you worry about identity theft? Have boxes of documents with sensitive information you don’t want to put in the trash or recycling bin? The Town of Leesburg is here to help! Twice a year, the Leesburg Department of Public Works & Capital Projects hosts free community document shredding events.
The next shredding event will be this Saturday, June 16, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tuscarora High School, located at 801 North King St. At a typical event, nearly 10,000 pounds of documents will be shredded on-site by mobile shredding units and then recycled. If the shredding trucks fill before 1 p.m., the event may end early, so residents are encouraged to arrive no later than noon.
Residents—not businesses—may bring up to three boxes or bags of documents, each equivalent in size to a standard file storage box. For a list of items acceptable for shredding, as well as tips on identity theft protection, go to leesburgva.gov/shredevents.
