Popular document shredding event set for July 25

Did you file your taxes and need those confidential documents shredded? Do you have piles of office paperwork lying around from working at home?

Residents and businesses can prevent identity theft by shredding sensitive documents at the City’s popular free shredding event from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, July 25, 2020, at the City Corporation Yard located at 333 Burgess Drive.

Confidential document destruction includes items such as receipts, checks, pre-approved credit applications, credit card statements, outdated tax returns, pre-printed envelopes, return address labels and business cards. Participants are limited to three boxes (10" x 12" x 15") per vehicle and materials will be shredded on-site. Documents with paper clips, staples and binder clips are acceptable.

Please note: The electronic waste recycling portion has been canceled. Do not bring any e-waste or household hazardous waste materials.

To practice social distancing, please follow these guidelines:

Please label “Shred only” on any shredding materials and leave them in the trunk

It is recommended to remove all other personal items from the trunk to avoid any accidents

Residents will drive up to the vendors, remain in their vehicles with their face masks on, and the vendors will pick up the shredding materials from the trunks

For more information, please contact the Sustainability Division.
