Carver Financial Services, Mentor’s nationally recognized financial services organization, is once again teaming up with Northcoast Shredding Services to help you get rid of those vulnerable, sensitive, confidential documents — the cancelled checks, health information, credit card statements and other records that are so attractive to the wrong people.

Community Shred Days in Cuyahoga County

Residents of Cuyahoga County can take advantage of one or more Community Shred Days offered by the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District and many Cuyahoga County communities. During the Community Shred Days, residents may bring documents to a designated site for shredding and secure disposal.

Shredding services are provided by All Ohio Secure Shred, which shreds the documents on-site and recycles all shredded documents.

A calendar listing communities with their shred locations, dates, times and contact information is posted on the All Ohio Secure Shred website. Many communities place limits on the quantity of documents they’ll accept and limit the service to community residents: check your community’s website or contact the community representative listed on the calendar for more information.

In addition, the City of Cleveland Division of Waste Collection provides free document shredding for Cleveland residents Mondays through Fridays year-round at 5600 Carnegie Avenue, and offers free mobile shredding services at community events. For more information about City of Cleveland shredding services, download the flyer (click on the word “more” under “City Offers FREE Document Shredding Year-Round!”) from the City of Cleveland website.
