Over 8000 lbs of documents were shredded and diverted from landfill to recycling. $2967.55 was collected at $7 per box or $6 per box if 5 boxes or more. Many community members gave well in excess of the allotted amount as a donation to Rotary for the work the Dundas Valley Sunrise Rotary Club does in the local and international communities. When the $565 rental for the truck is paid, the club will net $2402.55. Community members are already planning for the fall shredding day that will take place in late October or early November.
Thank you to Scott Eccles of Eccles Uptown for the use of his lot and the promotion of the event through his sign. Also thank you to Bruce Eccles for the use of his sign at Eccles Auto Service.
Notice the photos of all the child labour!
