The “free shred event” Thursday in Santa Clarita is to offer residents a chance for “spring cleaning and clearing out desk drawers and file cabinets,” according to a USPS news release.

“Members of the public can bring up to two banker boxes or three grocery bags of paper documents to be securely shredded and recycled at no charge,” according to U.S. Postal Service officials. “Postal Inspectors will also be on hand to provide information on protecting oneself from fraud and theft.”
