South Queens, NY - Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-South Queens) and Senator Joseph P. Addabbo invite everyone to safely and securely shred their unwanted documents on the annual Rockaway Paper Shredding Day. The Assemblywoman has hosted a paper shredding with Senator Addabbo for years and this year on Sunday, July 17 from 10am-2pm at St. Camillus-St. Virgilius Parish parking lot located at 99-15 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, neighbors and residents of the 23rd Assembly District can bring their documents and shred them for free.
“We accumulate so much paper and documents over the years, and it can be so challenging to dispose of them in a safe and secure way,” Assemblywoman Pheffer Amato said. “This is a way to securely get rid of old and unwanted documents. I’m happy to partner with Senator Addabbo, St. Camillus and USA Shred to bring this invaluable resource to our community and make sure that we are protecting our most sensitive information.”
"Not everybody has a personal shredder in their home and do not want to risk throwing their sensitive documents in with the trash," State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. said. "These paper shredding events allow our constituents the ability to safely and securely dispose of their documents and papers at a convenient location in their own neighborhood. My thanks to Assemblywoman Pheffer Amato and USA Shred for partnering on this wonderful community event."
There is a limit of three (3) boxes per person during the event to ensure that everyone who arrives has the ability to shred their paper.
Cardboard, magazines, file folders, and pre-shredded paper will not be accepted during this event.
