Church hosting shredding event Thursday

Project for public will help benefit youth missions

FLOYDS KNOBS — High security is what 90 percent of people today want. So from thumb drives to floppy disks, from CDs and DVDs to all paper, notebooks, files, and anything with information on it, Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church’s youth will help it become pulverized to promote security — and to benefit a summer mission trip.

Thanks to the services of A+ Paper Shredding in Louisville and its owner, Mike Murray, the massive equipment to destroy items will be on site in the parking lot of the church at 2100 U.S. 150 in Floyds Knobs near Highlander Point between 2 and 4 p.m. Thursday, June 5.

That’s when participants only need to drive on site as the youth unload the boxes from individuals and businesses for the price of a donation. All proceeds will help purchase materials for the church’s youth group to repair homes in Appalachia this summer.

The 20-foot long commercial shredder, called “The Pulverizer” for its capability and power, thoroughly reduces most items to dust, as it is much more efficient than home shredders, according to Murray. He said all ages can benefit from the service, since retirees, homeowners, teens, and businesses are often flooded with paperwork or files, phone books, cassettes, and almost anything with information on it.

The effort is a practical way to clear through clutter in attics and basements as well as file cabinets and closets. The added benefit is that shredding supports recycling, reducing the amount of waste that otherwise could end up in a landfill, where criminals may be found going through items and stealing information.
