Annual Shred Day to be held at state fairgrounds Saturday

Nashville's annual Community Shred Day is scheduled to be held on Saturday at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the fairgrounds located at 500 Wedgewood Avenue.

Organizers said Shred Day is designed to help families and businesses from becoming the victims of identity theft.

Mid-State residents are welcome to bring sensitive documents they no longer want or need to the fairgrounds where the documents will be destroyed on the spot by machinery provided by Shred-it, a company that specializes is on-site document destruction.

The only cost is a $5 donation per box of papers that will go to fund the Crime Stoppers' reward fund.

Also at the fairgrounds on Saturday during the same time period officers will collect outdated or no longer needed prescription medications.

The outdated medications will be disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.  

In previous years, Shred Day was held at LP Field near downtown Nashville.

The event moved locations this year due closures on Interstate 24 that are scheduled to begin Friday night.
