It's a New Year, so shred the old and in with the new! People line up in New York’s Times Square Saturday, December 28th, 2013, to say “good riddance” to bad memories in advance of the new year. At Industrial Shredders, we love stories like this and we thought you would too.

NEW YORK — Hoping to forget the heart-breaks and hard memories of 2013, people lined up in New York’s Times Square on Saturday to discard physical reminders of unpleasant experiences with the help of industrial shredding machines.
The annual Good Riddance Day event, held three days before New Year’s Eve, allows people to symbolically purge bad memories by putting photos, documents or written reminders through a massive paper shredder in hopes of clearing a path to a brighter future.
