Chamber Shred-it Day

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

The Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce is offering monthly shred-it day to safely dispose of your secure documents. You can also arrange for drop off any other day by appointment.

Cleaning closets during pandemic stay-at-home orders? Clearing space for another tax season's documents? You're encouraged to take advantage of the Chamber's Shred Day services. Nearly everyday* is now Shred Day at the Chamber office at 90 E. Wilson Bridge Road, Suite 100, Worthington.

There will also be one day per month when document drop-offs will be accepted throughout the work day and collected with the help of a volunteer. No appointment is necessary during these times. Typically the monthly no-appointment needed drop off will occur the first Wednesday of every month. 

 *For the shredding of confidential documents, the Chamber will accept boxes of documents and donations on any day that we are open by advance appointment only (made by email to connect@worthingtonchamber.org or phone to 614-888-3040).

Safe, convenient drop-off 

The documents dropped off will be stored in locked collection bins furnished by Royal Document Destruction, who will destroy them with their micro-shredding processors after pickup. Please wear a mask and exercise safe distancing when placing documents in the bins. Disposable masks, gloves and hand sanitizer are available.

The bins will be wheeled into the foyer of the east entrance of the AAA Ohio Auto Building where the Chamber office is located.

(Look for the Chamber directional sign and logos on the double doors.) A wheeled cart will be available for removing boxes of documents from your vehicle.

Donation schedule

The Chamber will accept:

  • 1, 2 or 3 boxes of documents for a donation of $25
  • 4, 5 or 6 boxes of documents for a donation of $50
  • 7, 8 or 9 boxes of documents for a donation of $75
  • 10, 11 or 12 boxes of documents for a donation of $100
Please schedule an appointment to arrange for any larger drop-off of documents. Donations may be made through checks made payable to WACC, cash or credit cards.

A “box” refers to a “banker’s size” file box or similar cardboard box, or the equivalent of a 13-gallon kitchen trash bag (not a 30-gallon waste bag nor yard-size bag). Larger boxes or bags are discouraged and will count as multiple boxes.

Papers, magazines, file folders and stapled items will be accepted. Diskettes, CDs, DVDs and other media may not be included in the documents to be shredded. We are not accepting electronics at this event.

About Royal Document Destruction

Your documents will be destroyed securely by Royal Document Destruction, a Chamber-member business that was the first shredding company in Ohio to become certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID).

Royal Document Destruction sees the shredding/destruction process through from start to finish. The material is destroyed to a particle size no wider than 5/8 inch shred width (industry standard). Single, double and triple shredding systems provide added quality control. Once shredded, the material is commingled with similar grade recycled paper to further separate information. The paper is immediately baled and shipped by semi-load to paper mills for recycling. All material is destroyed in compliance with all federal laws, and meeting or exceeding standards set forth by NAID.

We hope you'll take advantage of the shredding services on the monthly Shred Day or by appointment at other times.
