Free Shred Event Saturday in Fairfax County

shred-300x199+1

We learned recently of an upcoming free shred event for Fairfax County residents in Virginia. Residents can take up to five boxes of personal papers to shred.

Do you shred your documents at home or how do you protect your identity?

Below is more information from the county’s website.



The Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program will be sponsoring one secure document shredding event in each supervisory district per calendar year.  Shredding is a free service for Fairfax County residents.
