Shred Day Fall 2023

  • Saturday, November 04, 2023
  • 8:00 AM - 1:30 PM
  • 9301 Johnny Morris Rd, Austin, TX 78724
Austin residents can prevent identity theft by properly disposing of personal records and information at Austin ARMA’s Fall Shred Day, Saturday, November 4, 2023. The event is sponsored by the Austin Chapter of ARMA (a not-for-profit professional association and the authority on governing information as a strategic asset) in partnership with Balcones Shred, a trusted document destruction company in Austin, Texas. Drop-off will be held at Balcones Shred, 9301 Johnny Morris Rd. from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Balcones Shred will accept the following paper items:
  • Papers with personal or confidential information
  • Tax returns
  • Bank records
  • Invoices
  • Receipts
  • Medical records
Residents can bring their paper records in boxes no larger than 24 inches by 24 inches by 36 inches for shredding. In order for the documents to be shredded, the items must be dry paper in a cardboard box with fitting lids.  All boxes and paper will be recycled.  No plastic bags, hard plastics, electronic media or three-ring binders will be accepted.  

Shredded paper should not be placed in your blue recycling cart at home because it is difficult to capture these very small particles during the recycling processing. Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the Shred Day opportunities so that the shredded documents can be recycled.

Monetary donations will be accepted at the event.  Half of all donations will go to the Austin ARMA Chapter and the other half of donations will go to Operation Turkey, a charity dedicated to serving hot meals on Thanksgiving.

The Austin ARMA Chapter also hosts an annual Spring Shred Day event for those who cannot attend the fall event or do not want to hold onto documents for an entire year. Visit our website or follow our social media for updates.
