HUNTINGTON BEACH...It was early Saturday morning May 21st as drivers passing Oka School in Huntington Beach noticed a large truck and popup tent in the school's parking lot and upon quick inspection they read the words The Paper Depot on the side of the truck.

Members of the Nelson Group from Keller Williams Real Estate in Huntington Beach were holding a free community shredding day for neighbors to bring boxes of old electric, phone, internet bills and other important, but useless paper documents that have been piling up in closets and the garage for years.

It was time to do some spring cleaning and that is when Jeanette Nelson came to the rescue.

Nelson, her husband Darren, her son Luke and two members of the Nelson Group Real Estate team arranged to have The Paper Depot's shredding truck and crew to help neighbors inthe area totally destroy these document from prying eyes of hackers wishing to find information, (bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, etc,) to use in their hacking efforts.

Enlisting her husband Darren and son Luke at the school entrance to direct cars into the right lane that leads to the three at the popup where the drivers were welcomed and handed a thank you card before being directed over to the two employees standing by the shredding truck.


After the public handed over cardboard boxes and bags to the men, the sound of the monster in the truck is heard feeding itself on its diet of paper.

Nelson group members L-R: Madison Bangle, Jeanette Nelson and Theresa Bangle


The Nelson Group sponsored the free shredding event as a service to the local community so community residents have a way to safely destroy old documents.

Jeanette and Darren Nelson are very familiar with Oka School as their son Luke attended and graduated there before now attending Talbert Middle School.
