NOVA-Annandale to partner with Allstate, NBC4 to host Community Shred, March 7

Northern Virginia Community College will partner again with NBC4 (WRC-TV) for a Community Shred on Saturday, March 7. The event will take place at the Annandale Campus from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. in the B-15 parking lot. 

Those planning to attend should be in line no later than 11 a.m. There is a five-box maximum, and organizers ask that attendees not bring batteries, flammables, electronic equipment, CDs or DVDs, or binders. 

This is the ninth time that NOVA has hosted this popular event. Last year, there were more than 2,000 cars and trucks that drove through and dropped off boxes of personal papers to one of 12 shredding trucks supplied by the Shred-It Company. 

Each year, NBC4 partners with Allstate and Shred-It to bring the metropolitan Washington D.C. area Community Shred events. Fairfax County’s Office of Solid Waste Management helps NOVA Police officers and parking staff set up the parking lot to accommodate the large amount of incoming cars.

If the college is closed due to inclement weather on either Friday or Saturday, the event will not be held.
