John Coulson, senior agent, empties one of the many boxes people brought down on Saturday, March 17, for Castell Insurance’s first shred event. Precious documents and papers weren’t so lucky on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, when Castell Insurance, 426 E. Washington St., hosted its first shredding event. LeMay Mobile Shredding brought a truck that shredded 11,520 pounds of personal documents for about 250 people. So many documents were shredded that the sides of the truck bulged out. The documents eventually will be recycled. Some people brought records from as far back as 20 years ago. Phil Castell, agency owner, said he plans to offer the event annually for free and his business uses the service monthly. “We take privacy and people’s information very seriously and believe in protecting people from identity theft,” he said.
