KRB and City of Richmond Collected 11.11 Tons During 2019 Document Shred Event
Though Saturday, April 6, 2019 proved to be a stormy day, people didn’t let that stop them from bringing their documents to be shredded at Keep Richmond Beautiful and City of Richmond’s Document Shred Day at City Hall Plaza at 402 Morton Street. This year’s efforts resulted in 22,220 pounds, or 11.11 tons of materials processed from citizens of Richmond. That was an increase over 2018 of 2860 pounds or 1.43 tons more than what was shredded in 2018! Imagine what may have happened on a beautiful day! Barbara Johnson of KRB shared “This project was a community effort that could not have run so smoothly without all of the volunteers from George Ranch High School”.
