Keep Newnan Beautiful

Document shredding Jan. 11

Getting organized in the new year? Need to get rid of old documents and papers?

Keep Newnan Beautiful and The Shred Doctor can help. The city program is hosting a Document Shredding Event on Saturday, Jan. 11 from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. in the Newnan City Hall parking lot at 25 LaGrange Street.

Keep Newnan Beautiful is offering area residents the opportunity to safely discard bank statements, medical history papers, and other documents containing confidential information.

'Plan to take advantage of this free document-shredding event,' said Carol Duffey, director of the Keep Newnan Beautiful program.

The shredding is offered to Coweta County residents only, with a six-bag limit.

No businesses are allowed.

The Shred Doctor, the city's partner on this event, will offer residents the opportunity to safely discard confidential documents using a mobile, on-site shredding truck, Duffey said. Residents can watch their documents being shredded and have comfort knowing that the shredded materials will be recycled without risk of their confidential information falling into the wrong hands.

For more information about this and other upcoming events contact Duffey at 770-253-8283, email cduffey@cityofnewnan. org or visit the program's website at www.keepnewnanbeautiful. org.
