Hi Andrea, now this has got to be the coolest thing! Should start one up in my area, lol.

Very nice free thing indeed.  I need to go to one of these, too bad you live so far away.

Andrea - never heard of a free shredding day, but I'd have plenty of evidence things to shred! We need something like this in our area!

Now that's a public service. Will there be a separate private area for politicians?

George, it really is a great idea! You always have papers to shred!

Richard, drive on up! :D

Jackie, you should! I think my office will be doing one in the future.

Navona, I have a small shredder, and I hate to use it, LOL. So they pile up....

Kristine, I have plenty of evidence things to shred myself!

Ed, LOL, they hang around the dumps to do their campaigning... probably afraid we will shred them too!

Gary, isn't it a great idea!

Lanre, LOL, I would have taken them there for you... and thank you!

Ms Andrea,

I am quite good at shedding documents for the boss. He puts the ones that need my efforts in a separate pile.

Nutsy, I am sure you are the best!!! I would hire you in a heart beat!!!
Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 7 years ago

We certainly need one of those around here Andrea! Last year one of the shredding companies put one on, but hey that was last year!

That's a needed service which I hope makes its way to Silicon Valley soon.  I need a jumbo, commercial shredder myself, not a wimpy one that takes 8 sheets at a time.  I predict a long line of shredders and I wonder how much it cost Union Savings Bank to sponsor that event.

Good morning Andrea.

That is a great program.

Most people have so much paper work that needs to be shredded.

Awesome idea for the bank to offer FREE!  You know you are getting older when you are excited to get a new shredder.  My husband found an awesome one at Costco and went back and got me one:-)

All the best, Michelle

Shredding for FREE!  An awesome idea in meeting friends and neighbors while building a sense of community simultaneously.
