Shredding Event Set for March 2nd

Do you have old bills, tax documents, health information or other personally identifiable paperwork that needs to be shredded? If so, you won't want to miss your opportunity to clear out your clutter and protect yourself from becoming a victim of identity theft by participating in our upcoming semi-annual Shred a Ton event. The Lee County Sheriff's Office and the Pilot Club of Fort Myers will once again partner in this community event on Saturday, March 2 from 9am-noon at the sheriff's office headquarters located at 14750 Six Mile Cypress Parkway.

Shredding will occur on site and representatives from the Sheriff's Office will be on hand to help drivers unload their boxes to be shredded. A donation of $5 per box is suggested with all proceeds to benefit the sheriff's Project Lifesaver program. Participants are asked to remove all non-paper items such as paperclips, staples, binders, etc. Project Lifesaver is a program designed to track and locate individuals who wander and become lost due to Alzheimer's, Dementia and Autism through state of the art radio frequency tracking technology. To find out more about Project Lifesaver, contact the Sheriff's Office Community Relations Unit at 258-3280.
