Shred Days

Urban Impact encourages you to bring by your boxes of files and paperwork for secure, on-site shredding right before your eyes.

You’ll be able to safely and cost-effectively destroy unnecessary documents.

Have your old tax records, bills, bank statements and other sensitive documents shredded and recycled.

Urban Impact provides two shred opportunities where you can watch your material being destroyed:

Urban Impact is proud to partner with a number of organizations to help them to host community Shred Days!  (Please note, the Shred Days events are led and organized by the Financial Institution or Not-for-Profit organization. As Shred Days event organizers may change the date or time of the event, please check our website to make sure the event is taking place.) Learn more about community shred days.

Urban Impact’s Shred Days are a convenient way to destroy your unnecessary documents and materials right before your eyes. Please see details about our Shred Day locations and dates below. 
When you arrive, an Urban Impact staff member will assist you in unloading your vehicle and taking your documents to our shred truck for destruction. You can leave your cardboard boxes with us, or of course you are welcome to retain them.  We’ll weigh the materials for shredding. We’ll provide a receipt indicating the weight of the material and the cost of the shredding.
