Community Shred Event
Community Paper Shredding Event
 
We have rescheduled our Community Shred day to Sunday June 27th. 
 
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 Sunday, June 27th from 10:00AM to 2:00PM at the Austrian Canadian Club parking lot located at 3112 - 11 Street 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!
 
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.

Our Club's Stories
Fundraising event
Rotary Club of Calgary Olympic recently held a successful, environmentally friendly community paper Shredding event in partnership with PulpShred, a “Green “ Shredding company. Funds raised went toward the Club’s commitment to fund a guide dog for the local CNIB.
The Rotary Club of Calgary Olympic is supporting Brazilian Rotarians in the fight against COVID-19. The first PPE supplies funded by a Global Grant with Rotary Clubs in District 4540 were delivered to the hospital in Sertãozinho, São Paulo. Thanks to all those who made this project possible.
