Shredded feat

Cintas Document Management hosted a community shredding day at the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce along with the chamber Saturday morning. Brian Armstrong of West Salem loads a large, gray container filled with papers into the Cintas mobile shredding unit. A three-man Cintas crew including Bob Thomas of Salem and Aaron Meredith of Canton helped dispose of about 8,000 lbs. dropped off by over 150 cars during the free shredding drive. Thomas said the first-time shred day went very well. He said the truck has 10,000-lbs capacity and was nearly filled. He expects there will be more people using the service next year. Also held Saturday was a downtown cleanup and graffiti removal event. (Salem News photo by Larry Shields)
