UNION– Union County’s mobile paper-shredding program will travel to Union Township on Wednesday, May 18.
The shredding event will take place at Union Public Works, off Vauxhall Road and Stahuber Avenue. NEXCUT Shredding of Teaneck will be shredding Union County residents’ personal documents at the site from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., rain or shine. The event will end before 1 p.m. if the shredding truck reaches capacity.
In an effort to accommodate all participants, there is a limit of four, 10-pound bags or boxes per person. Documents should not be bound. Remove plastic binders and paperclips. 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 shredding event will take place on Thursday, June 9, at Rahway River Park in Rahway. For more information about future events or directions, call the Recycling Hotline at 1-908-654-9889 or visit www.ucnj.org/recycle.
The mobile shredding program is paid for through New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Recycling Enhancement Act Grant Funds.
