The Port Moody Rotary hosts its annual shred-a-thon on June 3, 2023, in front of Port Moody city hall.

Did you find old or unwanted documents lying around while spring cleaning the house?

If yes, the Rotary Club of Port Moody wants them for a fundraiser next Saturday (June 3).

The organization is hosting its annual Shred-A-Thon at city hall as Tri-Cities residents will have the chance to safely dispose of any personal papers.

The six-hour by-donation event hopes to curb identity theft and fraud — occurrences that could stem from valuable information found in the trash.

Proceeds from the shredding station will go towards youth and community programs hosted by the local Rotary Club.

Interested participants are encouraged bring any and all unwanted documents for bonded professionals to safely shred.

This includes confidential notes, tax records, banking statements, credit card bills and any other important unwanted documents.

Rotarians, however, will not be accepting any plastic, photos, CDs, metal or electronics.

The latest Shred-A-Thon is scheduled for June 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., or until the trucks on site are filled, at Port Moody city hall (100 Newport Dr.).

Cash and Visa donations will be accepted, according to the event's description.

For more information, you can visit the City of Port Moody's website.

The Tri-City News is a partial sponsor of the Rotary Club of Port Moody Shred-A-Thon.
