It is the new year and the perfect time to get rid of documents that may contain sensitive and personal information that is taking up space in your home. The City of Seabrook will be hosting a Community Shred Day to allow residents to properly and securely dispose of these types of documents. The event will take place Tuesday, January 14 between 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Seabrook City Hall, 1700 1st Street, Seabrook, TX 77586.
The Office of the City Secretary will be managing the event and asks that every resident please take note of the following:
- Residents must provide proof of residency by bringing a copy of their City of Seabrook utility bill. This event is limited to City of Seabrook residents only and while residents of El Lago, Taylor Lake Village and even portions of Pasadena have a Seabrook zip code they do not qualify as residents of the City of Seabrook. If you live in a City of Seabrook apartment complex and do not have a utility bill be prepared to show proof residency.
- Shred Limit - Each household/vehicle will be limited to four (4) standard letter-sized boxes. A standard banker’s box or box of copy paper is a good example of the size of box that will be accepted.
- We cannot accept:
- Three-ring binders
- Metal such as bull or binder clips (staples and paper clips are acceptable)
- Plastics such as zip lock bags or grocery bags
- Materials will only be accepted between 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. OR until the truck is full, whichever comes first.
- Please be courteous and patient in the event you have to wait for verification and drop off.
What should you shred? Here are some common examples of items that you should shred; invoices, financial statements, canceled checks, checkbooks, medical records, credit reports, and tax returns. As a rule of thumb, if it has personal information on it, you should shred it rather than throwing it away.
In the event of inclement weather, we may reschedule the event with a date to be determined. Please monitor the City of Seabrook’s social media feeds and website, www.seabrooktx.gov, for updates.
