The Lake Gaston Association will sponsor its Fourth Community Paper Shred on Saturday, April 15 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The collection will be accomplished in the lower parking area at the Roanoke-Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department at 790 Lizard Creek Rd.
Items to be shredded can include any old paper records; staples and paper clips need not be removed, but please no three ring binders or heavy metal clamps.
We can accept any amounts that can be processed in the time period. The truck mounted shredder consumes about 10 book boxes/cases of paper every 8 minutes. People can stand and watch while the paper is shredded.
The shredding is professional grade and is the same level of shredding contracted by banking institutions. Donations will be accepted to help defray costs.
