As part of a larger national BBB Secure Your ID Day effort, area residents and businesses are encouraged to shred and properly dispose of their sensitive paper documents free of charge at two half-day events (held annually in spring and fall). There are several locations in our local markets: Fargo, Jamestown and Bismarck in North Dakota and the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
The public and business community are invited to bring up to two boxes or bags of documents to be shredded. Documents to be shredded should be removed from binders, but staples are okay.
Check back soon for 2017 Spring Shred Event Dates!
A total of 44,043 pounds of material was recycled in North Dakota and 36,094 pounds, plus an extra 5,616 pounds of electronic materials, was recycled in the Twin Cities at the Spring shred events! This equates to about 680 trees and 280,494 gallons of water saved.
