Community Paper Shredding Event
Sensitive documents taking over your filing cabinet? Worried about data security and ID theft? Tired of spending hours with a personal shredder only to find paper remnants all over your home office?
 
Rotary Club of Calgary Olympic has teamed up with PULP SHRED with a solution to provide you peace of mind!
 
ROTARY CLUB of CALGARY OLYMPIC is hosting a community shredding event on Saturday, September 26, 2020 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM at the Italian Cultural Centre (East parking lot) located at 416 1st Avenue NE.
 
Shredding will be done for a donation to the Rotary Club of Calgary Olympic - Visa/Mastercard/debit/cash will be accepted.
 
Come join us for the Community Shred Day and make a contribution to support local Calgary charities!
 
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this will be a drive through event only. There will be no social gathering. Rotarians and PULP SHRED representatives will all be strictly adhering to Alberta Health Services COVID-19 guidelines.
 
Here's what you'll need to know:
  • Remove metal clips and take documents out of 3-ringed binders and plastic folders (staples and little paper clips are fine);
  • File folders are fine as long as there are no metal hangers, metal clips, or non-paper contents (e.g. CDs/DVDs, Hard drives, plastic, et al);
  • Place them in a file box (or a bag / tote) and bring them over with a contribution of your choosing at the shred event.
  • Please limit to 3 boxes of personal documents per household.
PULP SHRED, a Calgary owned confidential document destruction company, will collect & securitize all documents, transport them in secured storage containers to their Calgary facility and shred your confidential documents securely and in a sustainable manner. No noisy, dusty & fuel inefficient shredding trucks! 100% of your shredded paper is baled, recycled and repurposed into new paper products – committed to zero-landfill paper waste!
 
Don't have your documents ready for shredding? No worry, at the event you can purchase security shred bags.** Then at your convenience drop the bags at PULP SHRED’s facility and they'll do the rest.
 
Proceeds from this event will go directly to supporting Calgary charities like: Pace Kids, the Boys and Girls Club, I Can For Kids, the CNIB and other worthy causes.

** Shred bags are dual ply, security printed and 100% recyclable.  Above all, they are pre-paid, i.e. the bag price includes the shredding cost! The bags will be available to buy at the Italian Cultural Centre located at 416 1st Avenue NE at a cost of $30. If you would like to receive email confirmation via a secure video link when your documents have been shredded, provide your email address and for an additional $10 per bag, PULP SHRED will provide you with a unique secure video proof of your shredding.
