SCOTCH PLAINS – Union County’s next mobile paper-shredding event for personal documents will be available on Saturday, June 25, at the Union County Vo-Tech in Scotch Plains.
NEXCUT Shredding of Teaneck will set up in the parking lot of the Union County Vocational-Technical Schools, 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine. The shredding event will end early if the shredding truck reaches capacity.
All Union County residents are eligible to use the paper-shredding service. 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 are welcome to 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 Saturday, Aug.13, at the Kean University campus, 1000 Morris Avenue, Union.
The mobile shredding program is paid for through New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Recycling Enhancement Act Grant Funds. For more information about future events or directions, call the Union County Recycling Hotline at 1-908-654-9889 or visit www.ucnj.org/recycle.
