Kroger will host a free community shredding event this weekend in conjunction with event partner Cintas Corp., at the grocery chain’s Kenard Avenue store in Cincinnati. Local businesses and community members are encouraged to bring any confidential documents containing personal information, including names, Social Security numbers or financial information, for safe destruction.
“Identity theft is a growing threat, and we want to provide our community with a proper method to destroy confidential information,” said James Avant, Kroger’s assistant advertising manager, adding that attendees will benefit from the “secure, compliant and earth-friendly document destruction solution” offered by Cintas, which like Kroger, is based in Cincinnati.
During the event, anyone can bring personal documents to Kroger and have them shredded by an on-site certified Cintas employee. From drop-off to destruction, all documents will be constantly monitored and protected. Further, all of the shredded documents will be recycled into secondary paper products to reduce waste and impact on the environment. This will save trees, energy and gallons of water while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
