What is a Shred Event?
A shred day is when one of Jessica’s Shred Team’s truck truck comes to a location in the community and shreds the paperwork of individuals from around the community. These events are sponsored by companies, non-profits, and other organizations who pay to have a paper shredding truck stop at a location for several hours.
These events are typically open to the general public although each event is organized by a sponsor who will establish the criteria for their event. Community shred events typically last between 2 and 3 hours and most often held on a Saturday, but that’s not a requirement.
