Helping Gloucestershire locals keep their personal data safe, National Shred Day has been set up by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) – in partnership with independent charity Crimestoppers – to give people the chance to safely dispose of their confidential waste.
Taking part at Morrisons superstores across the country on Sunday 2 October 2021, local businesses and members of the public will be able to head to the Gloucester store in Abbeydale to professionally shred their important documents with the help of Printwaste, a local company and BSIA Information Destruction member.
There’ll also be the option to make a donation to Crimestoppers, with all money raised helping to fund regional projects carried out by the charity in the south west.
With many people across the county working from home throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, it’s easy to see how confidential documentation may have built up – whether it’s personal information or paper data from small businesses and independent traders.
And scarily, the standard shredder you might have in your home office won’t do the job well enough to stop thieves from stealing your personal information.
So from hefty lever arch files to boxes of paper statements, National Shred Day encourages locals to bring as much as they want to dispose of along to the Morrisons superstore in Abbeydale, where their personal information will be shredded on site.
It’s the perfect opportunity to have a clear out and get rid of confidential information about you, your household or your business in an eco-friendly and secure way – with all waste shredded on-site before being baled and recycled into paper and tissue products.
