Semiannual Document Shredding Event

Once again, the Bethany Lions Club will sponsor a “Document Shredding Day” on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The event will be held at the Town Recycling Center, 755 Amity Road, between the hours of 9 A.M. and Noon, rain or shine.

ProShred-Connecticut, based in Wallingford, will provide a truck with self-contained shredding capability. All shredding will be done on site. To expedite the process, Lions members will help unload vehicles.

This is a convenient opportunity for town residents to dispose of old papers and documents, tax records, bank statements, etc. in a safe and secure environment. Although the service is free of charge, a nominal donation amount will be suggested to help fund ongoing Lions Charities activities.
