Lorain County residents can have documents destroyed at shred day

A shred day and food drive will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Collection Center parking lot, 540 S. Abbe Road, Elyria.

LorainCounty residents can bring documents to the site to have them shredded for free on-site. There is a limit of five boxes or five blue grocery bags per vehicle. Participants should bring an ID and are asked not to exit their vehicles.

The event, sponsored by the Lorain County Commissioners and Business Records Management, partners with Second Harvest Food Bank. Participants can bring a non-perishable item for donation; the most-needed items include cereal, peanut butter and canned good such as tuna, soup, vegetables and beef stew.

    I would want to see them go into the shredder. If it isnt possible, then find another set up. Anyone concerned enough about privacy to shred docs will not just hand them over to someone.

      Special trucks are being brought in for this and the shreading happen right there.

        That doesn’t address my concern. I want to see it shredded, not told to hand it over and move along.

          with hundreds of cars to take advantage of this service in a few short hours, its impossible.

    I expect to see lots of Goodwill employees there.

    What better way to celebrate Jesus being tortured on the cross than free document shredding!

    Bring the kids and shred the Koran!

    …don’t home office shredders cost about as much as nose hair trimmers?

    Rumor has it the Lorain County Board of Elections pulled up and shredded thousands of ballots marked Republican.

    Not sure if this is true, but I think we need a thorough investigation!
