What: Austin ARMA’s 13th Annual Free Spring Shred Day
Where: ACC Highland (use 523 E Highland Mall Blvd for GPS)
When: May 14, 2016 (Sat) 8am – 1:30pm
With the increased awareness of identity theft, it is more important than ever to carefully dispose of personal records such as credit card statements, checking account records, prescription documents, and medical insurance files. The Austin chapter of ARMA along with Balcones Shred, Iron Mountain and Shred-It are sponsoring our 13th Annual Free SPRING Shred Day. Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 14th, 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at ACC Highland (6101 Airport Blvd – GPS address below). Due to increased demand, to ensure the safety of the volunteers, and to streamline the process, we will continue to provide our very successful “Express Lane” for attendees. This speedy and secure option will allow attendees to drop off their boxes on a secure truck that will be driven by insured and bonded shred vendors to their secure shred facilities here in Austin and will be shred within 48-72 hours. Mobile Shred Units will also be available for those who wish or their items to be shred in their presence. We will only accept dry paper packed in cardboard boxes with fitting lids that are no larger than 24” x 24” x 36” (i.e. no hard plastics, no plastic bags, no electronic media, no batteries and no three-ring binders). For additional specifications regarding what can be shred and how it should be prepared, please visit http://www.austinarma.com/shred-day. All of the shredded material and cardboard boxes are recycled.
Please note the location for the spring shred day will be held at the ACC Highland campus at 6101 Airport Blvd, but the address to use in your GPS is 523 E Highland Mall Blvd. This is on the opposite side of campus from the main address.
ARMA International is a not-for-profit professional association and the authority on governing information as a strategic asset.
Monetary donations will be accepted with 50% of the proceeds going to the local ARMA Austin Chapter and 50% going to the Capital Area Food Bank.
