Community Shred Day Results!
Thank you to everyone who participated in Community Shred Day this year! We were able to shred 11, 580 pounds (5.79 tons) of paper! This equates to 108 carts- the most we have ever shredded with one truck! Additionally, we donated 424 lbs of food to the Oregon Food Bank and approximately that much to St Vincent de Paul- thank you everyone for your donations.

Due to our sale of the West End Building, the City is trying to determine the future of Shred Day, given the space needs and excessive traffic this event generates. However, residents can shred their documents securely, year-round. Here are a few ideas:
- Make use of our 20% off coupon for shredding at the UPS Store, posted below!
- Organize a neighborhood shred event. Get your neighbors together and set up a shredding block party. No long traffic lines to sit in, and a guarantee that the truck will not fill up before you get your chance to shred! Contact EnviroShred for more information on how to rent a shred truck for a morning!
- KGW and IKEA both run very large shredding events throughout the year. Check their website for more information.
If we are able to find a location that accommodate the long lines and traffic that Shred Day generates, we will advertise the event date and time widely. Keep in mind that idling in cars for long periods of time while waiting to shred is in itself, not very sustainable. Thus, we encourage residents to look into one of the options listed above for your secure shredding needs.
