Good morning Roy. I have boxes of notes and documents collected over the years. Now is the time to review and discard many of them. A program such as free shredding would offer me some incentive to get the job done. Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Roy... what a wonderful tie-in to food donations. I could use one of these events in my area... and would be happy to donate food.

We bought a shredder years ago and never have much of an accumulation of documents we don't need anymore.

I find it sad that we live in a world where others cannot be trusted and we have to shred everything.

Hello Roy - like Nina Hollander, Broker I like the "tie-in" with donations, that this shredding event in Gaithersburg has planned.

Community shred and e-waste events are valuable.  A few months ago, I was in a shredding mood, and would have loved to of had one of those events available at the time.  As it was, I spent most of a morning doing the shredding myself.

When we lived in Napa, we had these type of events, and we liked them.  Now we have our own shredder.  Happy Monday.  A
