It's that time again! Your Better Business Bureau is partnering with River City Shredding, Chattanooga Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Resource 1 Tier 3 Data Security, the Hamilton County Coalition, and the Chattanooga Times Free Press to bring you our biannual Shred Day.

Shred Day is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 22 at the Chattanooga Coca-Cola Bottling Company's parking lot located at 2111 W. Shepherd Rd. This site can be accessed by taking Exit 1A (Airport Exit) off Highway 153.

Please note that you are encouraged to come during the earlier hours for document shredding, as that portion of the event could stop sooner than noon if the shredding trucks fill to capacity.
