Happy Earth Day! Every year on the Saturday after Tax Day, Home NV Real Estate hosts a document shredding event known as the Shred-A-Thon.  This year marked the 3rd Annual Shred-A-Thon and it was an enormous success!

Reno shred a thonOn Saturday April 18, hundreds of local residents came out to Home NV’s offices on South Arlington Avenue to safely shred their sensitive documents on site.  The shredding truck from American Document Destruction ran non-stop ripping, tearing, and shredding documents from 11AM to 2PM.  The truck’s capacity is 500 cubic feet and local residents filled over 400 of those cubic feet with their unwanted bank statements, medical records, canceled checks and outdated tax documents.  This is about 10,000 pounds of paper that has been recycled.

By recycling 10,000 pounds, Home NV and the local residents helped save:

  • Shred a thone85 trees
  • 35,000 gallons of water
  • 2,000 kilowatts of energy
  • 450 cubic feet of landfill
  • 500 gallons of fuel

In addition to providing a safe way to destroy documents and help the environment, Home NV Real Estate also raised nearly $700 for Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful — a local non-profit which focuses on clean-up efforts of local public spaces and the Truckee River.  Home NV is very proud to be an active member in the Reno/Sparks community.  Next year’s Shred-A-Thon is scheduled for 4/23/2016, so mark your calendars!
