Shred your documents FREE at 8 On Your Side Shred-A-Thon April 24

8 On Your Side

TAMPA (WFLA) – Ready, set, SHRED! The 8 On Your Side FREE Shred-A-Thon is set for Saturday April 24.

There will be a drive-through drop off where masked and gloved WFLA staff and volunteers will remove paper and electronic items from your car – please place shredding and recycling items in the trunk or cargo area of your vehicle. Those dropping off can remain in their car for the safety of all involved. No appointment necessary!

You can bring up to 8 boxes of personal documents including paper and electronic devices. We accept personal documents, no businesses. And remember, no metal binders and no cardboard. Documents are destroyed by Shred-It, a professional document destruction service with mobile trucks. Electronics will be recycled by Stream Recycling Solutions, a local leader of e-waste solutions.

The sixth annual Shred-A-Thon presented by AAA will take place from 8 a.m. until noon at the North Parking Lot of Raymond James Stadium, which is located at 4201 N. Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa.

We will be closing the gates at noon so we can make sure everyone gets to the shredder before the event is over. If you are in line at noon, you will be able to shred.

News Channel 8 anchors, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders and mascot Captain Fear will be on hand to pop up in the car line to say some hellos and snap some selfies to share on your social media pages!
