Bellevue realtor hosts document shredding day

Do you have stacks of paperwork with personal or sensitive information listed cluttering up your house and don’t know how to safely discard them? If so, bring them down to Weichert, Realtors – Pillar Northwest in Bellevue during your lunch break in May and watch them get shredded to pieces.

Weichert, in partnership with Guild Mortgage, is hosting a free Shred-A-Thon on Sat., May 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the Weichert affiliate’s parking lot located at 14100 SE 36th Street in Bellevue. The event sponsors will also be collecting clothing and toiletry items to donate to Mary’s Place, a Seattle-based non-profit organization that assists the homeless. Items to donate include: socks and underwear, baby wipes, large diapers (sizes 4, 5 or 6), dental floss, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, toothbrushes and deodorant.

“We invite anyone in the area to drop by our parking lot on May 6th to safely discard those stacks of old bills and other documents that may be taking up space in their house,” Lara Germino, the owner/broker of Weichert – Pillar Northwest. “They can also donate diapers or toiletry items to help the less fortunate in the area.”
