The Town of Penfield’s Energy and Environment Advisory Committee (EEAC) will host a secure document destruction event for Penfield residents on Saturday, June 5 at the Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. This service will be provided on-site by Eco-Green Park certified document destruction (www.eco-greenpark.com).
“Residents often speak to me and other EEAC members about the importance of having a secure way to dispose of sensitive and confidential paper documents,” said Supervisor Tony LaFountain. “Many families cleared out old files and paperwork while staying at home during the pandemic—now they’re ready to get that material shredded. We planned this event with that need in mind and booked Eco-Green Park to follow this year’s extended tax deadline.”
June 5 is World Environment Day, an annual event that has been celebrated since 1974 to raise the importance of a healthy and green environment and solve the issues of the environment through positive actions by government, organizations, and individuals. Secure document destruction helps support these goals by protecting individuals from identity theft while responsibly disposing of and recycling paper materials.The Eco-Green Park mobile shredding truck is provided for the benefit of Penfield residents only. Businesses and organizations with bulk shredding should work with their recycling service to arrange secure document destruction.
