Shred Day is coming! The Austin chapter of ARMA (which officially stands for Association of Records Managers and Administrators) is having it’s Fall Shred Day Saturday.

Why is this so exciting? You can box up all of your old records that you no longer need, but have sensitive information contained in them, and Austin ARMA will shred those documents for you.
