Comerica Park will be the site of our eleventh annual Shred Day, presented by Comerica Bank, Iron Mountain Incorporated and Re-Source Partners. Shred Day is a free document shredding and recycling event designed to raise awareness of identity theft protection and recycling. Bring a suggested donation non-perishable food and help support the Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, too!
This one-day, free public service event will take place on Saturday, May 19, 2018, from 8am to 1pm in the parking lot of Comerica Park, 2100 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48201. We’ll securely destroy and recycle any amount of your personal or business paper documents. This year we’ll also accept small electronics items for recycling.
Help protect your identity, help the environment and help support Gleaners. See the below FAQs for a list of the types of documents you should shred or keep, small electronics you can recycle, a list of prohibited items and more information about the event. We look forward to helping you do some financial cleaning at Shred Day!

You may bring any amount of paper documents to be securely destroyed. You are not required to remove small staples, paper clips, rubber bands and/or small fasteners. We’ll also accept computer systems and accessories, audio/video equipment and office equipment. Please find a list of accepted small electronics and prohibited items below.
Accepted items include:
Prohibited items include:
Anything that contains sensitive information (name, address, social security numbers, account numbers, etc.) that you no longer need, and that you want to keep out of the hands of thieves or “dumpster divers.” These documents could include old utility invoices, bank statements, medical records, credit card offers and old tax documents (older than 7 years), just to name a few.
After Iron Mountain securely destroys your paper documents, the processed materials are then transported to paper mills to be turned into pulp for recycled paper. This destruction process greatly reduces pollution, preserves landfill space and saves trees, water and even oil resources.
Comerica Park, 2100 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, Michigan 48201 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Comerica employees are not able to accept documents for shredding from customers or other members of the public. Please attend Shred Day to have your sensitive paper documents destroyed for free on Saturday, May 19.
While we’ll make every effort to destroy the majority of the collected documents onsite with “Mobile Shredding Units,” or live shredding trucks, some of the paper documents will be loaded into secure trucks and transported to Iron Mountain’s nearby shredding plant for secure destruction and recycling. The goal of the event is to process our guests efficiently and for safety reasons, we encourage all guests to remain in their vehicles.
Due to the amount of shredding resources we'll have onsite, there is no box or bag limit at Shred Day this year. Therefore, feel free to bring us all your sensitive paper documents for free, secure destruction.
We cannot accept cardboard boxes. If you bring your paper documents in a cardboard box, the Iron Mountain representative will hand the box back to you after emptying its contents into the secure shredding bins.
Yes, volunteers from Gleaners Community Food Bank will be present to collect any donations from our guests.
A donation is not required for admission. However, we sure hope you'll consider bringing non-perishable food to help support Gleaners. While every donation is appreciated, below is a list of the preferred food items which support healthy eating habits:
