Want to celebrate Earth Day while actually doing something to help the Earth?

RE/MAX of Los Alamos will host a free paper shredding event Saturday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its office, located at 116 Central Park Square, Los Alamos, the company announced in a new release.

All shredded materials will be recycled, according to the release.

Along with celebrating Earth Day, the event is also an opportunity to tackle spring cleaning projects and destroy documents that, if they fell into the wrong hands, could result in identity theft.

A large Shred-It truck will be at the location. Up to five boxes of paper will be accepted, including stapled paper.

Organizers encourage visitors to bring old tax returns, bank statements, canceled checks, pay stubs and other personal documents.

Hard drives and other electronic equipment will not be accepted.
