Free Shred Day in Williamson County


Liz Jenkins


I’m in the middle of working with a client who had a lot of papers. These are papers from deceased relatives that are not longer needed. After we’d sorted and bagged/boxed up all of them, we had to decide what do with them. The plan was to take them to be shredded as a home shredder would burn out with the sheer volume. The place I was going to use charges $12.50 a bankers box.

BUT, turns out Williamson County is holding a FREE shred day. Here’s the details:
