Free Community Shred Fest

For those Better Organized readers who live in the Atlanta area, there is a free shredding event scheduled for Saturday, January 22 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the Toco Hill Shopping Center.  The event is co-sponsored by real estate agents Joan Kaplan and Tammy Martin along with professional organizers Michelle Cooper and Linda Lanier (who you may recognize as one of Creative Order's Lead Organizers).

Look for the Eco Shredding truck near the clock tower by Kroger.  To guarantee that your sensitive documents are definitely gone for good, you will be able to watch your papers being shred.  Even better, there's no limit to how much paper you can bring!  If you've got a bunch of shredding that you've been stockpiling, save your poor little office shredder and bring your papers to the Shred Fest.

This Shred Fest is being held in conjunction with the National Association of Professional Organizers'  Get Organized Month which occurs each January.  Declutter and make room in your file cabinet for your more current and active files.  This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of those boxes of old papers that have been piled up in your home or office! 

For more information about this event, you can reach Michelle Cooper at 404.784.2100 / or Linda Lanier at 404.435.8425 /

Thanks! Glad you are enjoying it, ATL. There is an upcoming community shred day on Saturday, April 30, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. until 12 p.m. in the Resurgens Bank parking lot (2300 Henderson Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30345). The event is being sponsored by the Northlake Community Alliance, Inc., Resurgens Bank, and Eagle Secure Shredding.

The event is free but there is a request for (tax-exempt) donations to support the work of the Northlake Community Alliance. There is a limit of 5 copier paper-sized boxes or equivalent bags. Arrangements can be made for large shred jobs by contacting Ian Taylor at Eagle Secure Shredding at 770.619.5300.

I'll repost this information on the Better Organized blog a couple of weeks before the event as a reminder.
