It is a great time to clear out things you don’t want or shouldn’t keep any longer. There are two important events on Saturday, April 28th.
Nation-wide you can participate in the National Prescription Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Follow this link to find locations near you: http://bit.ly/2ev8CLN This is an opportunity for people to dispose of prescription drugs that they no longer use safely.
Protect your identity by carefully disposing of personal records, including financial and medical records.
In the Austin, Texas area you can participate in Austin ARMA’s Free Shred Day from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (or until the trucks are full) at ACC Highland Campus, 523 E. Highland Mall Blvd.
Dry paper of any color is the only accepted material. All paper should be in cardboard boxes with lids or flaps that close. This will ensure no documents will get dropped or carried off by the wind, keeping your information protected. DO NOT TAPE THE BOX CLOSED. We cannot accept paper in plastic bags or leaf bags. You can use any cardboard box with a fitting lid that is not larger than 24” x 24” x 36”. We have to ensure the volunteers can pick the boxes up. We also cannot accept flimsy boxes that may fall apart if picked up.
Please do not bring plastics, wet paper, clothes, electronics, metal, three-ring binders, wood, binder clips, rubber bands or anything else that is not dry paper.
Here is a Guide to Person Records Retention from ARMA to help you decide what you may let go of. http://bit.ly/2qn89Sy
