AUSTIN – March 12, 2014 – Balcones Shred, a division of Balcones Resources in Austin, Texas, announced a “Shred Day” event on March 22nd, 2014 at the Round Rock Recycling Center located at 310 Deepwood Drive, Round Rock, Texas from 8am to 1pm.
The Round Rock Recycling Center has a long history of reliable, responsible and conscientious handling of recyclable materials and is always looking for new ways to serve the area residents.
Residents and local businesses can bring their materials to be destroyed to
government-level standards and know that the resulting shredded paper will be recycled by Balcones and returned to good use.
Accepted items you should bring includes papers with personal information, tax returns, bank records, invoices, receipts, medial records or any paper you feel is confidential.
Residents may also bring media storage devices like hard drives to be shredded.
“Just because you deleted the information on the hard drive does not mean it is erased,” shared Ryan Bell, General Manager of Balcones Shred in Austin, Texas. “Many people take old hard drives and recover the data without the owner knowing – until they get a bill for online purchases they did not make.”
