NEW YORK (WNCN) – Bidding bye bye to bad memories – and bad boys – brought crowds out to Times Square.

But first- broken hearts weren’t the only thing broken at the “shred it” event.

Who hasn’t wanted to do that least once?

“Good Riddance Day” is a time to shed and shred any negativity from 2015 – to make way for positive memories in the coming year.

Many came out to say good riddance to bad boys and their bad behavior- shredding names, even wrapping paper featuring a former couple.

Also shredded was an invitation to a canceled wedding.

Shredding student loans – another common theme- also brought cheers from the crowd.
