The July 21 shredding event will take place in City Hall Plaza at Main Street in Rahway 07065. NEXCUT Shredding of Teaneck will be shredding documents at the site from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine. The shredding event will end before 1 p.m. if the shredding truck reaches capacity.
All Union County residents are eligible to use the personal document paper-shredding service. In an effort to accommodate all participants, there is a limit of four boxes per person. Documents should not be bound, and plastic binders and paperclips should be removed. Residents should continue to recycle non-confidential papers and magazines with their municipal recycling program.
Documents are put into 96-gallon containers provided by the shredding company. The items are then dumped onto a conveyor belt and put through the shredder. Participants may view the shredding process via a closed-circuit television. The shredded documents are then recycled, shipped to paper mills and used as pulp.
The next document-shredding event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 14, on the campus of Kean University in Union, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The mobile shredding program is paid for through funds from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Solid Waste Services Tax Grant. For more information about future events or directions call the Recycling Hotline at 1-908-654-9889 or visit www.ucnj.org/recycle.
