We’ve been keeping an eye on Shred-it vehicles since our May 29 column about a five-truck shredding operation that dominated Freeland St. when we came across it.
Shred-it vice-president Bruce Andrew said his company uses the tiny street for off-site shredding, instead of blocking busier downtown streets, and that it is looking for ways other ways minimize traffic disruption.
Based on what we’ve seen since then, Shred-it drivers aren’t doing anything different. They still park right outside their customers’ doors and seem unconcerned about traffic problems they create.
