Free Shred Days: Pendleton, Astoria, Grants Pass

The Professional Liability Fund is expanding its free shred events statewide for Oregon lawyers.  We will be in the following cities in August:

  • August 2 – Pendleton
  • August 9 – Astoria
  • August 23 – Grants Pass

For details, including start time and directions to the shred events, check your email inbox.  Broadcast emails will be sent soon to lawyers in eastern Oregon, the northern Oregon coast, and the south valley.

Shredding generally continues until the trucks are filled to capacity.  Please respect the box per firm limit so we can provide this service to as many regional law firms as possible.  You must wait until your material is shredded and retrieve your boxes.  We cannot dispose of cardboard.  Paper clips and binder clips can be shredded, but 3-ring binders cannot.
