Shred event Saturday: WSU Waste Wise volunteers will be holding the first community Camano Island Document Shred-A-Thon from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The public and local businesses can bring their confidential documents and financial statements to be shredded by a licensed and bonded shredding company. People can watch the papers being shredded through a monitor in the truck. The paper is then recycled.

The cost is $5 for each grocery bag or “banker’s box” or $10 for an oversized bag or box. The event ends at 2 p.m. or until the truck is full. It will be held in the parking lot of the Island County Annex. Call Scott Chase at (360) 387-3443, ext 258, for more details.
