Shred-A-Thon to Raise Funds for Special Olympics

Published on: 2019/10/17 - in News

If you have old files, bills or other paperwork that needs to be shredded, you can help support Special Olympics Ontario by coming down to a Shred-a-Thon on Saturday, October 26.

Kingston Police in partnership with Iron Mountain and the Cataraqui Centre are inviting local residents to safely and securely dispose of household documents – including sensitive material such as tax or government documents, receipts, banking and credit card statements, school or work records – at the Cataraqui Centre from 10:00am to 2:00pm in the north parking lot area across from the Bank of Montreal (BMO).

Iron Mountain will be offering the shredding service by donation, with $10 suggested per banker’s box.
