SJC residents invited to upcoming document shredding events


St. Johns County (SJC) is inviting residents to two free document shredding events on Saturday, April 20. 

From 8 a.m. to noon, Advanced Disposal will host residents for a shredding event at the Anastasia Square Shopping Center in St. Augustine at the corner of SR 312 and A1A. Acceptable items include personal documents, white or colored papers, stapled or paper-clipped documents and file folders and file hangers. Three-ring binders, cardboard and items generated by commercial activities will not be accepted. 

According to Advanced Disposal, reasons to participate in such an event include minimizing the potential for loss of confidential documents, reducing the risk of identify theft, eliminating the potential for misuse of sensitive information and more. 

Also on April 20, Republic Services will host an office paper shredding and recycling event at its facility at 445 Republic Drive in St. Augustine from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Only residential office paper is allowed; no other materials will be accepted.
