Mobile Shredder Event  

Kinds of documents to shred

Remember, it's best to shred documents you're no longer using, that contain personal identifying information such as name, address, phone number, credit card number or social security number. Such documents should be shredded before they are thrown out for recycling. Some examples are: expired credit card statements and receipts, old tax returns or any other personal documents containing your name, address or other identifying information such as pre-approved credit card applications and licenses.

Come prepared. Remove all metal clips, fasteners, binders, folders and hard covers and placed the papers loosely in a box. Hard covers – cardboard or plastic covers on items such as ledger books, marble composition books and hard-cover books – cannot be shredded and will be turned away. Residents must rip pages out from hard cover books for shredding and throw the covers in their regular household trash.

Up to four boxes of papers are allowed for shredding .

No combustible materials allowed. 

All residents attending shredder events must follow these safety guidelines to protect themselves and staff.

• Residents must remain in their vehicles at all times. • Documents should be boxed and placed in the truck/hatchback of the resident’s vehicle, if possible, or in the back seat of the resident’s vehicle. • Staff will remove the box(es) directly from the resident’s vehicle and place them in the shredder mechanism. • Vehicles will be queued at a safe distance from staff and only one vehicle will be serviced at a time. • Within designated areas, residents are required to wear masks. • Please be mindful to observe all posted signage and directions.
