The Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce will host its first spring shred event at Lincoln County Publishing Co. on Saturday, April 13. The event is open to all, members and nonmembers alike.
A 10,000-pound capacity shred truck will be at the publishing company from 9 a.m. to noon. Visitors will have the choice to pay $10 per box or bag to shred or donate a nonperishable food item per box or bag. A portion of the funds raised from the event will be given to a local food pantry.
To ensure everyone has a chance to shred his or her documents, each person is limited to five boxes or bags.
Louis Doe Home Center, of Newcastle, and Servpro of Bath/Brunswick are sponsoring the event, and additional sponsors are being sought. In exchange for sponsorship, businesses and organizations can have a display at the shred event and will be promoted by the chamber leading up to the event.
