Leesburg, VA (May 8, 2017) – Do you worry about identity theft? Have boxes of documents with sensitive information you don’t want to put in the trash or recycling bin? The Town of Leesburg is here to help! Twice a year, the Leesburg Department of Public Works & Capital Projects hosts free community document shredding events.

The next shredding event will be on Saturday, June 10, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Leesburg Elementary School, located at 323 Plaza St NE in Leesburg. At a typical event, nearly 10,000 pounds of documents will be shredded on-site by mobile shredding units and then recycled. If the shredding trucks fill before 1:00 p.m., the event may end early, so residents are encouraged to arrive no later than 12:00 p.m.

Residents (no businesses, please) may bring up to three (3) boxes or bags of documents, each equivalent in size to a standard file storage box. For a list of items acceptable for shredding, as well as tips on identity theft protection, please visit the Town website at
