Resource Recovery invites Rhode Island residents to "shred it and forget it" at Shred RI (formerly ShredFast) located at 2111 Plainfield Pike, Johnston, RI 02919 (Plainfield Pike Flea Market Parking Lot) on September 15 from 8 AM to 12 PM.
Only personal documents generated in R.I. homes will be accepted; no documents from businesses, even home-based businesses, will be accepted. Tax returns, credit card statements, paycheck stubs, bank statements, cancelled checks, and medical records are all examples of sensitive, confidential documents. A sensitive or confidential document is one that contains a unique, identifying number that can be traced directly to a specific person, and which cannot be found readily through public searches.
The limit will be two containers full, similar in size to the old 22-gallon blue or 16-gallon green household recycling bins. Papers that are not sensitive or confidential in nature will not be shredded at this event. Please remove large metal binder clips, rubber bands, and plastic bags prior to attending the event. All documents should be dry; wet documents will be disposed without being shredded.
