FREE shredding events in Orange County usually limit the number of boxes you can bring to 2. This helps ensure that everyone that shows up won’t have to wait hours in line to get their documents shredded. The best free shredding events are sponsored by community organizations and local businesses. Some city sponsored events have no limits and can generate long lines or vehicles.
For information about booking your own shredding event call us. The price is $349 for 2 hours. 949-459-3278
Free community shredding events, like the one the city of Dana Point hold annually can help make Dana Point a safer place.
Does Dana Point’s Free Shredding Event allow you to witness the shredding?
Witnessing the shredding is important, and the best way to ensure that your confidential documents are properly destroyed. This is why privacy laws like HIPAA require that patient information containing documents are shredded while the practice can watch.
Watch out for OFF SITE SHREDDING.
Often times community free shredding events are so over crowded that they cut corners and allow shredding companies to collect paper and shred it at some other location. They call this “off site shredding’. This is an unsafe practice.
Shred Bull does not participate in any event that does off site shredding and allows paper to leave the event un-shredded. Many of the city sponsored events allow this ‘off site’ pick up and shred later practice to take place, which is why you will not find Shred Bull participating in those free shredding events.
Any time you hire a shredding company ask if you can watch the shredding take place, if they don’t, find another place to shred your documents.
Here is the next DANA POINT FREE SHREDDING EVENT flyer:
TRI-ANNUAL BULKY ITEM DROP OFF DAY EVENTS & FREE SHREDDING EVENT
The City of Dana Point, in an effort to encourage Dana Point residents to recycle, sponsors 3 Bulky Item Disposal and Recycling Events per year. Dana Point Residents are encouraged to take advantage of this Free event by bringing items, that cannot be picked up on regular collection days, to one of the convenient locations listed below.
Dana Hills High School
33333 Golden Lantern Street
Dana Point, CA 92629
Palisades Elementary School
26462 Via Sacramento
Capistrano Beach, CA 92624
The next scheduled event will be Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 7:30am to 2:30pm sharp. These events give residents a chance to drop off their bulky items for Free instead of taking them to the landfill. Residents can bring e-waste, green waste, large appliances, furniture, and other bulky items that don’t fit in a normal waste container. Many of the items collected at these events can be recycled.
Goodwill Industries will be at both Dana Hills High School and Palisades Elementary school to accept charitable donations from Dana Point residents in order to help others in need.
Additionally, free document shredding services will be available to Dana Point residents free of charge at each of the Bulky Item Clean Up Days.
Dana Hills High School will have on-site shredding services available.
