3rd Annual Community Shred-A-Thon — The Biggest One Yet!

Home NV's 3rd Annual Shred-A-Thon.

Reno residents shredding their sensitive documents at Home NV’s 3rd Annual Shred-A-Thon.

Happy Earth Day! Every year on the Saturday after Tax Day, Home NV Real Estate hosts a document shredding event known as the Shred-A-Thon.  This year marked the 3rd Annual Shred-A-Thon and it was an enormous success!

Irene Voronel and Raquel Riggle of Home NV Real Estate

On Saturday April 18, hundreds of local residents came out to Home NV’s offices on South Arlington Avenue to safely shred their sensitive documents on site.  The shredding truck from American Document Destruction ran non-stop ripping, tearing, and shredding documents from 11AM to 2PM.  The truck’s capacity is 500 cubic feet and local residents filled over 400 of those cubic feet with their unwanted bank statements, medical records, canceled checks and outdated tax documents.  This is about 10,000 pounds of paper that has been recycled.

By recycling 10,000 pounds, Home NV and the local residents helped save:

  • 85 trees
  • 35,000 gallons of water
  • 2,000 kilowatts of energy
  • 450 cubic feet of landfill
  • 500 gallons of fuel

In addition to providing a safe way to destroy documents and help the environment, Home NV Real Estate also raised nearly $700 for Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful — a local non-profit which focuses on clean-up efforts of local public spaces and the Truckee River.  Home NV is very proud to be an active member in the Reno/Sparks community.  Next year’s Shred-A-Thon is scheduled for 4/23/2016, so mark your calendars!

Shred-A-Thon a HUGE success!

Thanks to everyone who came to shred their documents and donated money to Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful.  The weather was cold and windy but the participants enjoyed entering our raffle, chowing down some Rounds donuts, as they watched years of documents get pulverized by American Document Destruction.  With over 300 people joining us to shred and hundreds of dollars raised for KTMB we are stamping this one a SUCCESS! Now on to the next big event organized by Home NV – the 2nd Annual Old Southwest Reno Community Yard Sale.

Time to SHRED IT!

Here at Home NV we love to keep things clean and tidy.  We strive to be paperless but alas, we still fall victim to required paperwork.  In honor of Earth Day and to help with those Spring Cleaning efforts, we are organizing our 2nd annual Shred-A-Thon.  The event is free to the public though donations are welcome.  This year we have partnered with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful to be the recipient of donations so that they can put the money to good use in making sure our beautiful Reno stays that way!

We are proud to be once again working with American Document Destruction.  Their trucks are super efficient and quickly and securely shred paper on the spot.  The truck is even equiped with a video camera so you can wshredatch your documents get destroyed!  While you wait, feel free to enjoy some refreshments courtesy of South Pacific Financial.  Also, don’t forget to enter our raffle, we have a ton of awesome prizes for some lucky shredders.

So come on by, bring your boxes of paperwork, eat some food, win some goods, and celebrate having a clean garage!
