Recycle, shred documents during day of service May 9 in Johns Creek

May 05, 2015

Doc shreddingAs part of a day dedicated to improving the community, the City of Johns Creek, Keep Johns Creek Beautiful, and Panera Bread Co. on Medlock Bridge Road are offering free recycling of electronics, fluorescent bulbs, and cooking fats, oils, and grease (FOG) and shredding of sensitive documents May 9 at Panera Bread Co. on Medlock Bridge Road. 

Volunteers helping at the event are part of a citywide day of service that includes community improvement efforts across the city. Other events include a clean-up of roadways by Adopt-a-Road sponsors, installation of a vegetable garden at Wilson Creek Elementary School, a blood drive at Shakerag Fire Station, and a cleanup of a portion of Johns Creek, the waterway that is the City’s namesake.  

The North Fulton Day of Service is supported by numerous organizations, including Leadership Johns Creek, Keep Johns Creek Beautiful, the Red Cross, Alpharetta Rotary, and Senior Services North Fulton. For a list of service day projects in Johns Creek and other North Fulton cities, see www.nfserves.org.  

To avoid identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission recommends shredding charge receipts, copies of credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements, checks and bank statements, expired charge cards and credit offers.  Documents at the event will be shred on-site, and all of the paper will be recycled.
