Shred-o-Rama 2020

Protect your identity and rid your home of confidential documents with ease - attend OCRRA's summer Shred-o-Rama event!

Residents can bring their confidential papers to be shredded at no charge. Five box limit per vehicle. Boxes should be medium-sized and easy to lift (measuring roughly 10" x 12"x 15") to keep attendees and staff safe from lifting injuries.

Personal records from a household such as medical documents, bank information, tax documents and other items containing account numbers or private details are ideal for drop off.

Attendees do not need a reservation and there is no charge, as a result of our partners' donation of time and talent. Many thanks to Assemblyman William Magnarelli, Confidata, ProShred and Simple Shred for collaborating with OCRRA to help residents prevent identity theft and ensure that their minced paper is recycled.

Participants should do the following

•Bring only confidential documents generated at home (e.g., tax forms, medical documents, bank information, credit card statements, or other items with account numbers). No phonebooks, magazines, newspapers, junk mail, receipts, hanging file folders, binders, photos, photo albums will be accepted. Materials from businesses are not accepted at the event.

•Pack confidential documents loosely, in cardboard boxes (limit 5 banker sized boxes per vehicle). Do not bring items in plastic bags. Remove binders or other non-paper contaminants.

•Enter the Brown Parking Lot of the NYS Fair from State Fair Boulevard, across the street from Gates 3 and 4.

•Stay in their vehicle, but make sure their trunk / back doors are unlocked and easy for staff to open quickly.
