You may recall a few months ago, we were exploring the possibility of starting a semi-annual Shred Day so residents and businesses would have an easy opportunity to get rid of old paperwork.
Great news! We found an even better solution to a 'once in a while' Shred Day.
Bakersfield BARC makes monthly trips to our region. There is no trip charge and the price per box depends on the quantity of boxes. Bill Casey is their contact person and his cell phone number is 661-487-2260. He will give you a quote when you call for a pick-up.
Their next three trip dates to Frazier Park are April 5, May 17 and June 28.
Their staff is not allowed to go up stairs, so you should plan to have your boxes available on ground level.
What makes BARC such a great option? BARC is a nonprofit organization and their mission "...is to build a stronger community by helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities achieve individual goals for a better life."
Many thanks to Chamber member Sari Potes of Altamont Hotel Management for passing along this information! She also says "I had my boxes picked up last week and it went so smoothly. Two very nice guys and one truck, it took less than five minutes."
