Menifee residents are invited to clean out and clear out their old paperwork in a safe and secure way through the City’s free Spring Shred Fest community shredding event. The event is being hosted by the City of Menifee, in partnership with Waste Management, and will take place Saturday, May 22 from 8 a.m. until noon at Menifee City Hall.
Shredding documents with personal information on them helps protect you from identity theft. Paperwork residents may want to consider shredding includes bank and credit card statements, canceled or voided checks, pay stubs, and utility bills, among any other documents with personal, identifying information.
Menifee City Clerk, Sarah Manwaring, encouraged residents to take advantage of the free opportunity. “The City of Menifee is glad we can offer this secure way to get rid of unneeded paperwork. With the shredding taking place onsite right at City Hall on the day of the event, residents can feel confident that their information will be disposed of safely,” shared Manwaring.
Menifee residents are welcome to bring up to three banker boxes to the free community shredding event. Attendees should bring proof of residency to the event. Please note that the shredding is for personal documents only, not businesses. While staples and paper clips are able to be shredded with the paperwork, make sure any boxes are free of binders, pens, binder clips or other objects in the boxes to be shredded.
For residents who can’t attend this month’s event, another community shredding day will be held in the fall. For more information about the Spring Shred Fest, please contact Roxana Burns, City of Menifee Records Technician, at (951) 723-3772 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
