A document shredding and recycling event will be July 8 at Macedonia City Hall, 9691 Valley View Road from 9 a.m. to noon. The event is free to Summit County residents and businesses. There is a limit of 10 file boxes or 10 paper shopping bags per vehicle.

Shredding confidential information to protect personal information and sensitive data is one step towards protecting yourself from identity theft. Plus, it is a good way to keep paper out of the waste stream and local landfill. Complete event details are at summitreworks.com/shredding.

ReWorks will hold additional free on-site document shredding and recycling events Aug. 5 in Green, Sept. 9 in Barberton, and Oct. 7 in Akron.

ReWorks is Summit County's Solid Waste Management Authority.
