Osage City Shred Day Event, 9-11 a.m., May 22, 2021, Osage City Street Department

Osage City Shred Day Event

Location: City of Osage City Street Department, 216 S. 9th Street
Date: Saturday, May 22, 2021
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Subject to change due to the COVID-19 Virus

Each year individuals and households accumulate many personal financial and health documents which require secure disposal to prevent identity theft.

City of Osage City, in connection with Document Resources, a Division of Underground Vaults & Storage, is having a FREE Shred Day to dispose of the general public’s personal documents and files at NO CHARGE.

This year will be a little different as stated per Document Resources: “We are no longer going to have a mobile truck located at our Manhattan location so we are offering shred events with our offsite shred trucks. We would bring secure containers to collect material and then take it to our facility to be shred. It is a secure process and we are NAID certified for offsite destruction.”

Individuals and households can bring their items to the Osage City Shred Day Event at the Street Department, 216 S. 9th Street, between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on May 22, 2021, so they can be gathered for destruction. The public need not worry about removing staples or paper clips, or burning up their personal shredder. Professional shredding equipment will take care of them. For compliance reasons, only personal and household materials will be accepted the day of the event. Limit of five (5) boxes or bags maximum per household please.

This is our way of helping our community combat identity theft and say thank you for the many years of community support we have received. Call Osage City Hall at 785-528-3714 with any questions.
