Have some personal documents you'd like to dispose of safely? Bring them to Prince George's Community College this Saturday, Dec. 8 for a Community Shred event.
From 8 a.m. to 11 am., county residents can bring up to five archive boxes or trash bags of paper to the Largo campus to be shredded for free.
To participate, drivers must be in line by 11 a.m. at the intersection of Prince Place and Campus Way South. No walk-ins are allowed.
Paper with staples or clips, empty binders, unwanted and expired credit cards, and computer disks will also be accepted. Business and commercial documents are not eligible.
Shredded paper from the event will be recycled by Shred-It, while boxes will be recycled by the county. Some 59 tons of cardboard have been reclaimed from past document shred events held at the campus, according to county officials.
The event is being run by the county in partnership with NBC Washington, PNC Bank, Shred-It, and PGCC.
