Shredding Event sponsored by Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli

Confidata

Protect your identity and rid your home of confidential documents with ease!

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 acceptable.

There is no charge to attend, as a result of our shredding partner’s donation of time and talent. Confidata’s collaboration helps residents prevent identity theft and ensures 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, nor photo albums will be accepted. Materials from businesses are not accepted at the event.

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

• Enter the Orange Parking Lot of the NYS Fairgrounds from State Fair Boulevard.

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