Let’s say that you are done with that old medical file, reams of taxes from 2003 (finally!) and emails that you used to print off? Start shredding! This weekend join the 4th annual Shred Fest at 16 locations throughout the city. Don’t let your bank statements, pay stubs or anything else sensitive go in your regular garbage: that’s where identity thieves score. Instead bring all those personal documents to Shred Fest and get started.
If you’ve taken care of your shredding, but need to do some clothes shedding instead, you are in luck too! Every Saturday you can recycle your clothes, shoes, bedding, handbags, belts and other textiles with Grow NYC at 8 select greenmarkets: 97th Street, Union Square (Mon and Sat only), Grand Army Plaza, Fort Greene, McCarren Park, Inwood, Tompkins Square and Jackson Heights.
