Do you have boxes of sensitive documents that are no longer needed, but can't be safely chucked in the trash bin?
The will host a free document shredding event on Saturday, Oct. 8 at the parking lot, 901 South Grady Way from 9 a.m. to noon, or until the shredder is full.
Each person is allowed to bring up to five boxes of paper documents to be destroyed in a truck-mounted shredder. Boxes should be 12 to 15 inches deep and 10 inches high, or bring the approximate amount of paper that would fit in a box that size. Documents are limited to household papers.

Iron Mountain will provide the shredding services and the Renton Police Department will provide information related to identity theft. Donations of canned goods and non-perishable food items will be accepted for the Renton Food Bank.
This event is co-sponsored by the City of Renton, Renton Police Department, Sam's Club and Iron Mountain.
