NOVA-Annandale partners with NBC4, Allstate to host community shred

Northern Virginia Community College will partner with NBC4 (WRC-TV) again this year to host a community shred event from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, March 25 at the Annandale Campus in the B-15 parking lot, 8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale.

This is the 11th year NOVA has partnered with NBC4 for this event in an effort to help the community properly discard personal documents to prevent identity theft. The gate for entry will open at 7 a.m. Participants can enter the campus on Lake Drive from Little River Turnpike and follow posted directions.

NOVA has partnered with NBC4 and local organizations for this event multiple times in the past. This year, NBC4 has partnered with Allstate and Shred-It to bring the metropolitan Washington D.C. area Community Shred events. Each year, about 2,000 cars line up at the community shred at NOVA-Annandale. 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.

Those planning to attend should be in line no later than 10:45 a.m. There is a four-box maximum, and organizers ask that attendees not bring batteries, flammables, combustibles, electronic equipment, CDs, DVDs or binders. This event provides a safe way to get rid of personal documents such as old bank statements and other personal documents. For more information, visit the NBC4 website here.
