In correspondence with Earth Day, MONCO will host a free opportunity to shred personal documents, old tax information, and confidential papers from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at their shredding operations center at 700 Liberty Lane in Dayton.
Saturday's event is a safe way to discard any personal documentation while protecting your identity. Documents that are shredded will be recycled.
MONCO is a non-profit organization administered by the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services that helps adults with disabilities find employment. The company's Secure Document Destruction Center gives people with disabilities the chance to serve the community and work hard for a pay check.
MONCO's Secure Document Destruction Center is a permanent facility dedicated to the document shredding process. The sorting and shredding equipment is partially funded by a $65,000 grant from the Solid Waste District. It is able to shred 4,000 pounds of documents each hour. The shredded paper is sold to a reprocessing business for recycling, and the proceeds go to workers at the facility.
