Shred it at MC!

Free Shredding Day Join us at MC Fitness & Health on Sunday, September 11 for a free shredding day. It’s a great, safe chance to dispose of personal documents and electronics you no longer need or want, protect yourself against identity theft and fraud, and declutter your home and your life. Unwanted documents may be brought in in either bags or boxes. All types of paper will be accepted, and staples, paper clips, rubber bands and binders do NOT need to be removed. Electronics will be accepted as well, although cathode ray monitors or televisions will NOT. Items may be dropped off between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. At the end of the event, Royal Document Destruction will transport the documents to their plant in secure containers in the back of their locked truck. All of their trucks are monitored with a GPS system so they can track their movements at all times. The contents of the secure containers will be destroyed within 24 hours of arrival at the plant and will be under video su

Swimmers are not permitted to use member locker rooms or towels.  Even swimmers whose parents are members.  When our swimmers arrive to use the facility for Buckeye, they must behave as if they are a guest of the facility. Please limit team locker room use t
