DYSART – Tama Benton Cooperative is sponsoring a Community Shred Day event on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to noon (or until the truck is filled). This free, drive-through drop-off will take place at their Dysart Office located at 504 Estelle St. and is open to community members and businesses in the areas served by TBC.

Tama Benton Cooperative will have a Shred-it mobile truck on-site during the event to accept confidential personal and business documents, such as old tax returns, credit card receipts, legal documents, account statements, and more. TBC staff will be available to help unload if needed. All documents will be shredded and destroyed on-site to help protect participants from identity theft and fraud.

Shred-it will NOT accept magazines, newspapers, coupons, or similar items that do not contain sensitive information. All shredded paper will later be recycled into commercial-grade paper towels, toilet paper, and other paper products.
