More available than you’d think if you’re watching much NBC4, that is. Not to disparage the upcoming free shred that NBC4 and PNC bank are offering on June 20th, as it’s a darn sight more practical and cheap than buying your own shredder and sitting there feeding things into it. However District residents don’t need to drive out to NVCC in Annandale – they have two locations run by the DC government where they can bring their documents to be shredded, open on any given non-holiday Saturday. Schlep your old documents to Benning Road Trash Transfer Station (3200 Benning Road, NE) or the Fort Totten Trash Transfer Station (4900 Bates Road, NE) between 8am and 3pm.
While you’re at it you can bring any old motor oil or electronics or any number of other kinds of waste that they’ll take care of responsibly recycling/disposing.
