The Mailbag: Update on the document destruction question

Sarah Weber • Apr 23, 2012 at 12:00 PM

A few weeks ago, we answered a question from a gentleman who wanted to know where he could have a pile of sensitive documents destroyed.

It's always a challenge to answer questions like this because there are so many options — and, inevitably, we leave someone out.

Such was the case with this question and Christie Lane Industries.

"In response to an April 2nd 'Mailbag' question from 'Harrison in Sandusky' about where people can go to have their documents securely destroyed, I was disappointed that the Register did not remember that Christie Lane Industries offers this service and has been doing so for almost 10 years," John Schwartz, of CLI, said in a letter we received last week.

Schwartz goes on to say that the Register has actually published stories about free shredding events, which include an annual "Eve of Destruction" each March when anyone can bring up to 500 pounds of documents to be destroyed free of charge. Otherwise prices are competitive and CLI is AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction. Seniors are offered free shredding of not more than 50 pounds four times per year.

It's also worth noting that CLI is a non-profit whose mission is to increase the earnings of workers with developmental disabilities. More information about CLI can be obtained by calling 419-706-4945 or shred@cli-inc.org.

So, Mailbag readers, if you have documents to shred, please consider taking them to CLI Document Destruction, 306 South Norwalk Road West, Norwalk.
