... avoids the feds together?
Kidding, of course. But I'm annually amused by the city's Community Shredding Event, which invites KCMO residents to grind up their confidential documents at the Metro North Community Recycling Center and at the Three Trails Community Recycling Center tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All of us, united as one by the fear of identity theft.
The city partners with a company called Proshred, which owns "state-of-the-art mobile shredding vehicles." They promise that 100 percent of the shredded paper will be recycled.
The event is free, but if you want to toss a couple of bucks -- no, not in the shredder! -- to the city's nonprofit environmental partner Bridging the Gap, well, that would be just lovely of you.
