The event, which marks “Earth Week”, takes place in the parking lot behind Rotary Hall, 39 Grey St. South, Southampton on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

The Club will again partner with Wasteco to bring an onsite service – a mobile shredding truck – to Southampton. The shredded material is used in recycled paper products.

Along with raising awareness of recycling and care for the environment, the event highlights the risks of identity theft and importance of safe, secure disposal of sensitive documents.

The environment is one of Rotary International’s Areas of Focus and in an April 12 news release, the Southampton Club said the community shredding event adds to events like the annual clean=ups of roadsides, Perkins Park and the beach.

There is no charge, but a donation $10 per banker’s box or similar size is suggested. Cash is preferred or payment may be made by debit or credit card.

Co-Operators, Port Elgin is again the signature sponsor for the shredding event, and sponsorship support also comes from RBC Meeting Place, Susan J. Dollar Law, Don Amy – McIntee Real Estate and in-kind support from Quality Inn Southampton and RONA Southampton.

Any proceeds will benefit Rotary’s causes, including the maintenance of Rotary Perkins Park.
