FOX 4 viewers help break a Guiness world record on Shred Day

Posted: Updated:
FOX 4 viewers came out in droves for shred day, helping us break a Guinness world record. 

Drivers started lining up outside the Comerica Bank in the 1500 block of West Mockingbird just before six o’clock Saturday morning to unload unwanted documents for shredding.

The previous record was 275,000 pounds of paper collected in a 24-hour period.
  Last year, we shredded 122 tons of paper. 
The new record, set by our awesome viewers, is 401,925 pounds.

Documents like utility bills, old bank statements, and credit card offers all hit the shredders.

"I always shred stuff at home, but after cleaning out a file cabinet it was more than my shredder could handle," said Linda Cothard.

A big “THANK YOU” to all of our viewers who got out to shred those documents.

FOX 4, Comerica Bank, and Iron Mountain were all proud sponsors of Saturday’s Shred Day.
