Shred it, erase it, get rid of it
A parade of cars filed into the Fairgrounds on April 19 to dispose of paper, cardboard, plastic, computer and electronic items as well as donating old glasses to Lions members. At least 250 cars brought items for disposal in the first two hours.
Shred Day featured Kahut Waste Services, Webber Consulting Inc., the Canby Police and most of all the Canby Chamber of Commerce. The 10-year-old Chamber program provides free shredding services to residents for paper and cardboard, plastic—including bags for disposal, with free electronic devices removal and the ability to have computer hard drives erased for $10 instead of the $20 Webber Consulting normally charges. Canby police were there to collect all medications for disposal and the Lions to redistribute the glasses.
The program, which is at least 10 years old, 15 years for Webber Consulting, provides 100 percent of the donations to the Chamber. All provide their services for free.
