Shredding events are common in Boston and major cities across the U.S. They offer an opportunity for community members to come together and safely shred their files while raising awareness on the importance of information security. Companies and organizations throughout Boston sponsor shred events to help keep their local communities safe, secure, and aware.
What is a Shred Day?
A shred day is when a mobile shredding truck comes to a particular location and shreds the paperwork of individuals from around the community. These events are sponsored by Massachusetts companies, non-profits, and other organizations who pay to have a document shredding truck stop at a location for several hours.
These events are typically open to the public, although the rules are established by the company who organizes the event. An average event lasts 2-3 hours and is typically held on a Saturday morning at a central, public location.
Why Host a Shred Day in Massachusetts?
Shred events are held for a variety of reasons. While the main priority of a shred day is to raise awareness on information security and help community members shred their sensitive files, many events are fundraisers to help raise money for a local cause. The organization hosting the event also gains positive exposure in the community. The shred event host gets a chance to interact with local community members while helping them keep their private information secure.
