Do you have important documents lying around and need to get rid of them, but don’t know where or how? 

Gather them up, and bring them to the North Hills Community Parking Lot at 1975 Ferguson Road, Allison Park, PA 15101 on Wednesday, June 12, 2024 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm!

We’ll have a Shred America Truck on-site to help you dispose of your important documents safely and confidentially. Unlike other shred services, you’re with your documents the entire time and you can even watch them get shredded right there in the Shred Truck.

Join us for Pittsburgh Shred Day!

Proper disposal of important documents is crucial in safeguarding sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands. Throwing them in the trash or recycling bin can expose confidential data to identity theft, fraud, and other forms of cybercrime. This is where shredding comes in as an effective and secure solution for document destruction.

Shredding ensures that personal and business information is permanently destroyed, making it impossible for anyone to reconstruct the documents. As a way of encouraging individuals and businesses to dispose of their sensitive documents safely, we are hosting a Shred Day event where we will provide on-site shredding services. Our event is a great opportunity for people to securely dispose of their confidential documents and protect themselves against identity theft and other crimes.

This is a free event, and anyone and everyone is welcome to come and participate. Not only will we have a Shred America Truck where we shred your important documents on site, we’ll have food, refreshments, and 50/50 raffle.



Before you join us for Shred Day, it's essential to familiarize yourself with some key details to ensure a smooth and efficient shredding process. Your cooperation helps us maintain a secure environment while accommodating everyone's needs effectively.

  • Limit 2 Boxes per Person: To ensure that we can accommodate everyone, we kindly request that each participant brings a maximum of 2 boxes of documents for shredding.
  • Acceptable Items: We will gladly accept old tax returns, financial statements, old loan applications, banking information, and any documents containing personal information such as social security numbers or financial details.
  • Items We Cannot Accept: Please note that we are unable to accept phone books, newspapers, or any materials deemed as garbage. Our focus is solely on securely disposing of documents containing personal information.

How We're Helping NHCO

Spring Cleaning Collection

At our Pittsburgh Shred Day, we will also be taking donations for the North Hills Community Outreach. Throughout the year, they have various collection calls for specific items the community is in need of.

SNAP benefits cannot be used to purchase cleaning supplies. These items can be an extra expense that many low-income families cannot afford. North Hills Community Outreach is holding a collection so they can provide each family with a bag of cleaning supplies to make their home sparkle.


What to Bring IDEAS

  • Laundry Detergent (size under 100oz )
  • Disinfecting Wipes
  • All-Purpose Cleaner
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner
  • Dish Detergent
  • Pack of Sponges
  • Roll of Paper Towels
  • Canvas Shopping Bag
  • Monetary Donations for "North Hills Community Outreach"
