Once again, the City of Hollywood gives you a chance to socialize/hobnob/people-watch and shred your inhibitions -along with your old documents- for free at Hollywood City Hall on Saturday, compliments of a giant shredder that will make your memories morph into recyclable mulch.
Remember late last year when you said that this year -Yes, this year!- was going to be the year where you -and or your significant other- finally went thru all those filing cabinets, red welds, manila folders, Rubbermaid and Tote plastic storage boxes and got rid of all those incriminating spy documents. love letters and utility bills from the last 5-15 years that you had carefully assembled in chronological order, in case you ever needed to refer back to them?
I've got good news for you, the Smithsonian Institution doesn't want them after all, so you can finally get rid of them.
And what better place to show that you are no longer a pack rat than a public venue where you can film your piles of stuff being brought in on your small luggage cart or your kid's old red wagon and then being shredded like it never existed?
Yes, finally, your own YouTube video!
Free Shredding Services for the Community
The Office of the City Clerk, Records and Archives Division, with the cooperation of International Data Depository (IDD), is sponsoring a free opportunity for businesses and residents to shred their sensitive records.
IDD will bring its commercial shredding truck to the City Hall parking lot on Saturday, April 21, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 12 noon or until the truck reaches capacity. Proof of Hollywood residency is required. Residents are invited to shred up to ten boxes of documents free of charge.
This event is being held to heighten the community's awareness of the dangers of identity theft by preventing personally identifiable information from falling into inappropriate hands.
For more information, please contact Richard Roberts, Director of Records and Archives, at 954.921.3545 or Patricia A. Cerny, City Clerk, at 954.921.3211.
