Angelina Beautiful/Clean Hosts Shred Day To Celebrate “The Great American Cleanup” and the “Don’t Mess With Texas Trash Off”
[LUFKIN, TX – April 6, 2018] Angelina Beautiful/Clean is celebrating “The Great American Cleanup” and the “Don’t Mess With Texas Trash Off” by hosting a Shred Day! It’s easy to celebrate with us by recycling your unwanted documents at the Lufkin/Angelina County Chamber of Commerce (1615 S. Chestnut) on Thursday, April 26th from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
The “Don’t mess with Texas Trash-Off” is the single largest cleanup event in the state and serves as Texas’s signature event for the “Great American Cleanup”, the nation’s largest community improvement program. The “Great American Cleanup” is a call-to-action to communities in public space cleanup, beautification and recycling events conducted by Keep America Beautiful affiliates nationwide.
Angelina Beautiful/Clean wants to give East Texans the chance to easily and safely recycle paper that would otherwise end up in a landfill or as roadside litter. Make plans to attend Shred Day to celebrate “The Great American Cleanup” and the “Don’t Mess With Texas Trash Off” and receive this free service!
Security Shredding will shred documents on-site and then take that paper to recycle at a secure location so that Angelina County residents can feel confident about items they are dropping off. Even businesses can participate but are limited to five boxes. Tax-deductible donations can be made to Angelina Beautiful/Clean.
According to Jennifer La Corte, AB/C Executive Director, “With the rise of digital security threats, we tend to forget that paper trails are easy ways for criminals to get ahold of our information to gain access to so many different aspects of our lives. This bi-annual shredding that we provide for our community helps create an avenue for secure destruction of personal documents at no cost to the citizens of Angelina County. It’s a way to make informed decisions and take simple, everyday actions to reduce, reuse and recycle. People can get their spring cleaning done and recycle at the same time!”
