Document Shredding Fundraiser at Stop & Shop

Why Go: The Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the event. Bring your personal household documents (no businesses please), ATM receipts, checks, old tax records, credit card statements, copies of bills, mail and other papers containing personal information that could provide thieves an easy way to steal money or an identity. All documents are shredded in a Professional Mobile Shredding Truck, while you watch, and are then recycled. No need to remove staples or paper clips. No plastic, cardboard or hard drives, please. Proceeds will go toward providing scholarships for Farmingdale high school seniors and supporting community events.
Pricing: 3 bags or 3 standard storage boxes of documents shredded for $10.
