It’s Rotary Southampton Spring-time Shred-N-Go


Mark your calendars!  It’s that Spring-cleaning time of year and for Southampton Rotary it’s time to hold the annual Shred-N-Go.

The environmentally friendly “drive-through” shredding event during “Earth Week”, on Saturday, April 22nd from 9.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m., takes place behind Rotary Hall at 39 Grey Street South, Southampton on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

The Club is again partnering with Wasteco, as they did in 2021, to bring an on-site shredding service to our community to shred personal, confidential and financially sensitive documents. The waste will then be used in recycled paper products.

The focus of the event is to:

• provide a service to the community
• raise awareness of re-cycling and care for the environment
• raise awareness of the risks of identity theft One of Rotary International’s Areas of Focus is the environment, so this is the Southampton Club’s way of focusing on this crucial issue and is in addition to their annual Road, Perkins Park and Beach clean ups.

The shredding truck will be located at the rear car park of Rotary Hall and signs will be in place for directions.
• There is no charge, but a donation $10 per banker’s box or similar size is suggested
• Cash is preferred or payment may be made by debit or credit card.

Proceeds will go to Rotary’s causes, including the maintenance of Rotary Perkins Park.

“We are delighted to once again be bringing a confidential shredding service to our Town, which is good for the environment and helps reduce identity theft. We are looking forward to having a fun event where we all can have a ripping good time!”
