Recap of ShredFest 2013
(KUTV) It was a busy day at Spring Mobile Ballpark where thousands of people showed up to take part in our 2News ShredFest.
ShredFest is a chance for you to protect your identity by shredding personal information.
People came from all over Utah with their bags and boxes full of paper, cell phones, hard drives, and other things that a crook might be able to use to steal their identity—all with the goal of protecting their private information.
The American Shredding Company, who makes a profession out of document and hard drive shredding, has partnered with KUTV for the past few years, donating their skills, time and money, for ShredFest.
Everything that was shredded on Friday will be shredded twice more at American Shredding’s headquarters. Then it will be recycled.
In eight hours on Friday, nearly 60,000 pounds of paper and more than 100 computer hard drives were collected. All of it guaranteed to stay out of the hands of identity thieves.
If you missed Friday’s event, stay tuned. We will have another ShredFest next year.
