Free document shredding, mask distribution this weekend in Federal Way and Auburn

Free events, hosted by King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer, run July 11 in Federal Way and July 12 in Auburn

Local community members are invited to free document shredding and mask distribution events this weekend.

King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer is hosting free new, reusable cotton mask distribution and document shredding events July 11 in Federal Way and July 12 in Auburn.

As in years past, residents will be able to bring as many documents as they would like to shred, but in keeping with public safety guidelines, the drop-off will be done through a drive-through, and staff members will be wearing masks and gloves, according to a news release.

Seadrunar, a secure document disposal company, will have a mobile shredding unit on site Saturday at the Federal Way Farmers Market and Proshred, a secure document disposal company, will have a unit on site Sunday in Auburn.

At both events, members of the public will be able to watch their documents shredded “live.”

In addition to providing this shredding opportunity and in an effort to keep King County residents safe by “flattening the curve” against COVID-19, Councilmember von Reichbauer will also be distributing face masks for free.

“This year, I am pleased to be able to offer King County residents with the opportunity to protect their health as well as their financial security,” said von Reichbauer. “Our residents have done a good job of covering themselves and practicing social distancing, and this event will help us to continue to work to flatten the curve together.”

The mask distribution and shredding events will take place:

In Federal Way: Saturday, July 11, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Federal Way Farmers Market, located in the old Sears parking lot of the Commons Mall (1701 S. 320th St.)

In Auburn: Sunday, July 12 from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot adjacent to Auburn Library at Les Grove Park (1102 Auburn Way South).
