It has become quite the tradition to plan to begin the next year with a clean slate. Whether you believe in creating a list of New Year’s resolutions or not, there is always something we make a promise to “do” or “not to do” for the upcoming year, right? From kicking off a new workout regime, to mentally ridding ourselves of bad memories, or celebrating the completion of a milestone, we all have our own way of saying goodbye and so long to yesteryear. With that said, we thought it was pretty cool that Shred-it, a company that offers shredding information destruction and shredding services, has partnered with Times Square Alliance for Good Riddance Day. Good Riddance Day was inspired by a Latin American tradition by which various artifacts and bad memories were placed into dolls and set on fire. Well, Shred-it is not planning to set anything on fire but they will be giving many of us the opportunity to start 2015 off fresh!

Say “hasta la vista, baby” as your soon-to-be-forgotten memories are permanently (and securely) shredded right in New York City’s Times Square in a public event to be held on December 28, 2014.

Want to be a part of the festivities? For one lucky winner, Shred-It is giving away a trip for two to New York City for Good Riddance Day on December 28 to say goodbye to your worst memory from 2014 once and for all! To enter to win you must submit a picture or up to 500 words describing the item you would like to say good riddance to forever. Creativity counts!

The Prize Package includes:

  • 5 night trip to New York, New York to attend Good Riddance Day (12/28/14)
  • Airfare for winner, and one guest within the United States
  • Hotel stay for 5 nights
  • Exclusive pre-viewing of the Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball
  • 2 tickets to the New Year’s Eve VIP Party

Submissions are due by Monday, November 24th at 11:59 p.m. EST. A panel of judges from Shred-it and the Time Square Alliance will award the grand prize winner with a trip to New York City for the opportunity to destroy their item in person on Good Riddance Day and ring in the New Year in style in Times Square!
