Shredder Secures 4+ Tons of Documents

8,900 pounds!

That’s how much paper was safely shredded May 7 on Shredding Day 2022 – our best year to date based on the weight of shredded documents!

That’s a lot of financial statements, personal and business documents — anything on paper requiring privacy but needing to be discarded in a fast and secure destruction. 

Shredding Day is a major fundraiser for the Hastings Sunrise Community Policing Centre, co-hosted with the Hastings North Business Improvement Association. 

Though it takes many much-appreciated volunteers to unload vehicles and transfer paper into totes, a big “thank you” also goes to Best Shredding and Rod Ivey, BC shredding manager.

The truck is a giant paper shredder that makes quick work of chopping up many boxes of paper, which otherwise takes a home shredder many hours.

Please save your old documents for next year! We hope you can visit us at Shredding Day 2023 to quickly and securely discard old documents and beat this year’s record.
