Event Recap: Spring Cleaning / Paper Shredding 2018

This year’s event took place at both the Illinois and Wisconsin offices. Opportunity Secure Data Destruction (OSDD) of Northbrook, IL and KARD Shredding of New Berlin, WI provided the mobile shredding services. We hope to see you all at next year’s spring cleaning / paper shredding event!
