Angelina Beautiful Clean hosts shred day event Thurs. and Fri.

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Thursday was the first day of a two-day effort by Angelina Beautiful Clean to help Angelina county residents securely get rid of their unwanted documents.

As part of the "Great American Cleanup", Friday, you can bring sensitive papers to the Chamber of Commerce and the Security Shredding truck will destroy them on site.

It's a free service that can help keep our environment beautiful by keeping paper out of landfills.

Angelina Beautiful Clean volunteer, Elvia Esteves-Garza says, "Everybody has a box they throw things in and accumulates and you don't just want to throw it in the trash. This is a great service. We securely shred the items and you don't have to worry about destroying the environment."

Angelina Beautiful Clean and the shred struck will be at the Chamber of Commerce on Chestnut Friday from 9 to noon. You can just drive up and drop off your documents
