RTC Industries employees and members of the Bellefontaine High School DECA shredded nearly two tons of personal documents during their “Shred Your Worries Away Before the Holidays” event. RTC Production Manager Helen Manns said the DECA students helped employees bring in 40 carloads of paper Nov. 21. Then they fed it through the industrial-sized shredders and got it ready for recycling. The group also collected canned goods and money to be donated to Our Daily Bread during the event.
This is the third time the two groups have worked together to publicize this service that RTC Industries offers. Manns explains that members of the community may bring their personal documents to RTC Industries to be shredded for no charge throughout the year. Businesses may also bring their papers to be shredded at 10-cents a pound or work with Manns on a schedule of fees. No prepwork, sorting or removal of staples or paperclips is needed. After shredding and baling, RTC Industries sells the material to paper mills for recycling. The proceeds support RTC employee wages and equipment maintenance. RTC’s shredding department is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 9 pm excluding holidays. For more information, contact Helen Manns at 937-292-3027.
