On June 30, 2012 PROSHRED® Security will be conducting a shred-event at Westfield Citrus Park Mall & Westfield Countryside Mall. This will not be an average community shred event, PROSHRED® and its partners are ready to set a Guinness World Record.

The original record was set at Comercia Bank in Texas on April 14th, 2012. The record represented the most paper collected in 24 hours - 111,920 lbs. PROSHRED® is not only aiming to break that record, but also shred every piece of paper it collects which will then be recycled at a local Tampa recycling plant.

Florida is the #1 state in the country for identity theft, with tax identity theft up over 500% since 2008. At 178.7 complaints per 100,000 people living in the state, it’s no surprise that PROSHRED® decided to break this world record here in Tampa.

PROSHRED® will be teaming up with ABC Action News, Allstate, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, 99.5 WQYK, the Clearwater Police Department, and Westfield Shopping Centers for the third annual “Operation Shredding”. Last year Operation Shredding protected the identities of over 3,000 people who attended the event, generating almost 100,000 lbs of paper in one day.
