    We tried to use your shred day, but the line at 1000 was down State St. for over 2 blocks and was not moving, it seemed. Definitely a safety hazard. We did not stay. Obviously this event was not well planned for the crowd that came. You either need to change the location (e.g. fairgrounds on Glenwood?) or do this more often at different locations.

    • Thanks for the feedback and trying to visit us at Secure Your ID Day (SYID). One of the recurring comments we received on site was, “Thank you for providing this free service,” immediately followed by, “You’re doing a great job managing this huge crowd.” Yes – to your point – we’re reviewing everything we did to be sure we’re at the top of our traffic management game. We had about 1,000 cars move through the line in 2-hours – with no fender-benders, scratches or door-dings. The numbers speak to our efficiency.
      Cintas & Western Records Destruction go above and beyond to donate all services – including paying all of their people to be there. Idaho Transportation Department donates use of its parking lot. SYID is truly a grass-roots, community effort to provide a free service. Other sites want to charge for use of space and asking our generous partners to give more just doesn’t seem right. The next free shred day is in mid-October in Canyon County. Watch the blog for details.
