Fort Myers, Fla. (June 12, 2017) – Markham Norton Mosteller Wright & Co., P.A. (MNMW) will partner with Secure Shredding, Inc. to host a Community Shred Day event on Friday, July 28 from 9am until noon. The Secure Shredding, Inc. truck will be on site at MNMW, 8961 Conference Drive in Fort Myers. There will be a two box maximum per person for shredding.

This is a FREE event, however, MNMW encourages participants to consider a donation to the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties when dropping off shred items. This can be in monetary form, or canned goods/new or gently used clothing. A United Way representative will be on site to receive the donations and answer questions.

“It is always a good idea to clean out our files and financial records,” said Gail Markham, CPA/ABV/CFF, CFE, CFP, Partner at MNMW. “Shredding these documents is a safe way to eliminate clutter, while safeguarding personal information. Our firm is offering this service to the community, while also bringing awareness to the United Way and its partner agencies.”

Items that can be shredded are limited to paperwork such as statements, tax records, contracts, blank checks, etc. A good rule to determine if an item can be shredded is “if it tears, it can be destroyed.” Items NOT suitable for shredding include hard drives, cell phones, batteries, etc. All shredded material will be recycled to support an eco-friendly environment. A shred drop box will be in the MNMW lobby during business hours the week before and the week following the event for those who cannot participate in Community Shred Day activities on July 28. A two box maximum per person will be applied during this two week period as well.
