Shredding Day Fundraiser

Keep Marietta Beautiful (KMB) set up another shredding initiative, “Destruction Day,” early in March and invited the public to bring their personal documents to shred.

According to local KMB officials, the event was again a success. “By the end of the day, we had shredded ten tons of paper and took in $2,300 in donations,” said Maggi Moss, community engagement supervisor/executive director of KMB. “We estimate we had at least 300 cars drive through during the three-hour event to support the disposal.

“Your decision to have your documents destroyed with KMB and A-1 Shredding means you kept ten tons of paper out of our landfill!” Maggi said. “You amazing folks also took all 100 free tree seedlings we were giving away. I hope all those sprouts grow up to be huge, healthy trees!”

SM&P’s Victoria Turney, KMB board member, said, “I’m proud of my fellow Marietta citizens and grateful to the volunteers who made this day such a big success. It was everything we’d hoped it would be and more.”

Other Keep America Beautiful chapters around the Atlanta area also offer shredding. Look for an opportunity near you. As for KMB, they’re already planning to offer another shredding day in the fall.
