Community Shred Day March 18
It’s the time of year for spring cleaning. There is no better, or safer, place to start than those unnecessary and unwanted documents that clutter drawers and put your privacy in peril.
That’s why Broad River Electric is hosting a Community Shred Day on Saturday, March 18 at our office at 811 Hamrick Street in Gaffney. This free to the public service will begin at 9 a.m. and last until 1 p.m. that day. In addition to the shredding of personal documents, area residents can also safely dispose of their outdated prescription drugs and medicines.
Identity thieves thrive on tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs, and anything else that has personal information. Just tossing those documents in the trash puts you at risk, making document shredding a business and personal necessity.
Broad River Electric has partnered with the same company that provides it’s shredding service to offer it’s proprietary crosscut shredding technology that turns sensitive paperwork into confetti-sized pieces. They’ll be set up with their mobile unit to shred your documents while you watch.
Proper prescription drug disposal is just as important. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Just flushing unused medicine down the toilet or throwing it away are potential safety and health hazards.
Representatives from the Cherokee County Drug and Alcohol Commission and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office will be at the event to assure proper disposal.
