Thursday Apr 20th, 2017
Cleaning out your filing cabinet? Bring your sensitive documents to the Baltimore City Department of Public Works free shredding event on Saturday, April 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Edmondson Westside High school, 501 N. Athol Avenue, 21229
Mayor Catherine E. Pugh stated: "This is an opportunity for City residents to safely dispose of sensitive paper documents quickly, easily, and securely."
Cancelled checks, medical records, credit card information, utility bills, old tax returns, and pay stubs are among the many items that should be destroyed by shredding. Bags that contain other trash will not be accepted.
Those interested can bring up to two 32-gallon bags of papers, and must bring a driver’s license or other proof of Baltimore City residency.
Recycling bins will also be available for purchase at a discounted price: 18-gallon bins ($4) and 25-gallon bins ($7), and lids for the 25-gallon containers ($3).
