Advanced Disposal, an integrated environmental services company, in cooperation with the City of St. Augustine, invite all residents to celebrate Earth Day by showing their commitment to a cleaner and greener environment at a document shredding event on Sunday at the St. Augustine Earth Day Festival.

From 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Lincolnville Farmers’ Market in Eddie Vickers Park behind the Willie Galimore Center, 399 Riberia St., residents can bring up to three boxes of confidential documents for immediate on-site shredding. In support of St. Augustine’s effort to keep the city and surrounding areas cleaner and greener, Advanced Disposal is providing this event to give residents an easy way to reduce the risk of identity theft and misuse of sensitive information.

Acceptable items for shredding and recycling include all personal documents, white paper, colored paper, stapled documents, paper-clipped documents, file folders, manila envelopes and envelopes. Items that will not be accepted for shredding and recycling include three-ring binders, CD’s, discs, any plastic vinyl and cardboard.

This will be the first annual signature Earth Day Festival held by the city of St. Augustine. Hosted by the Lincolnville Farmers’ Market, there will be many planet-friendly activities throughout the day to build awareness about our planet. The event will promote supporting local charities, vendors and Earth Day.
