Release: The Return Of The “Great DC Shredding Event” April 16


Got a lot of old sensitive papers you want to get rid of? Old Taxes, old bills, financial statements…love letters? This event is for you! Fresh from the County, news of the return of the Great Douglas County Shredding Event April 16 at the Courthouse.



    Douglas County residents will be able to bring their personal documents, tax records, financial reports, old love letters – anything on paper! – to the Douglas County Courthouse on Saturday morning, April 16th, for the 5th annual “Great Douglas County Shredding Event”, sponsored by the Douglas County Communications and Community Relations and Georgia’s Own Credit Union.

            Georgia’s Own Credit Union is bringing three bank-quality shredding trucks to the Courthouse parking lot, and residents will be able to “drive through” the designated shredding area to have their papers shredded while they watch.  The non-reconstructable shredding will be conducted by a FDIC contractor.


            The event will be held from 9 a.m. – 12 noon, and residents will be directed around the back of the Courthouse to the drive-through area.  Drivers should enter the Courthouse parking lot via the westernmost driveway (closest to WellStar Hospital).

            The event is free and open to the Public.  The shredding is limited to the personal records of County residents; businesses are not eligible for this service.

            Georgia’s Own Credit Union is co-sponsoring this event as part of its “go green” initiative, and is a community credit union where any Douglas County resident is eligible for membership and benefits.

          Georgia’s Own Credit Union and Douglas County Communications and Community Relations are sponsoring “The Great Douglas County Shredding Event”  to protect our residents’ identity and safety.

And as always, Thanks to Wes Tallon for the release!
