Scraponomics Episode 128: Document Destruction Day 2016!

“Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!’” — Robin Williams

It’s time to get ready for Friedland’s Document Destruction Day 2016!

What’s Document Destruction Day?

Glad you asked!

It’s the one day out of the year that we confidentially shred paper and hard drives for the public for free right here at our facility in Old Town from 8am - 2pm.

It’s always the Saturday after Tax Day. However, this year is a little weird. Here’s why.

While Tax Day is usually on April 15th, this year it will be on the following Monday (the 18th) due to the 15th being Emancipation Day in Washington D.C. Nevertheless, we’ve decided to still hold Document Destruction Day on the Saturday after the 15th, which is April 16th this year.

Whether you’re an individual with one box of documents or company with 200 boxes, we’re happy to shred them for you for free that day. Just remember, only paper and hard drives, and while we’ll be shredding paper continuously from 8am - 2pm, we’ll shred hard drives in batches.

Here’s another cool thing that happened on accident. Last year, Recycle Rama ended up scheduling their event on the same day as Document Destruction Day. At first, a lot people were worried that the two events may lose participants, but it actually had the opposite effect!

I think people really enjoyed having one day devoted to spring-cleaning, recycling, and purging. They were able to get their documents confidentially shredded for free and also take recyclables that Friedland doesn’t take to Recycle Rama. So this year (and perhaps from now on), we coordinated with the folks at Recycle Rama to plan our events at the same time.

So get those documents and recyclables ready because nature is saying ‘Let’s Party!’ and we’re bringing the hors d’oeuvres!
