The next Payson Shred-A-Thon takes place Friday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to noon, or until the truck is full, whichever comes first. Businesses and individuals can take advantage of this mobile shredding service to properly dispose of sensitive documents onsite in the parking lot of the old Foxworth-Galbraith location, 202 N. Beeline Highway. The cost per bankers box (10-inches-by-12-inches-by-15-inches) is $6, cash or check. Other sized boxes may be used, but the cost will be estimated based on volume. No prep work is needed — staples and paper clips need not be removed from documents. TNT Shredding will donate part of the proceeds to the Time Out domestic violence shelter.
