Montclair residents doing spring cleaning can also enjoy the peace of mind from seeing their confidential documents securely shredded, while saving money and boosting recycling.
The next Montclair Shred-Fest! will be held on Saturday, May 30, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at the Community Services Yard, 219 No. Fullerton Avenue. The event is hosted by the Montclair Office of Environmental Affairs and is free for all township residents.
Some people are concerned about recycling their personal documents, such as tax forms, medical records, financial information or business transactions. These recyclable papers often end up getting thrown away as garbage, disposal of which is very expensive.
But we earn money for recycled paper, so we need to capture all of these unwanted documents. Now residents can watch their private papers be destroyed, while still recycling this valuable material.
A paper-shredding truck will be provided free of charge; residents can drive in, and will be helped to unload their personal files. Bring paper in a reusable container, or in paper bags, but no plastic bags!
So, you can recycle more, save some money, and clear all those unneeded documents out of your home, at the 2015 Montclair Shred-Fest!
Remember: confidential paper documents only; regular paper recycling is collected curbside, or can be dropped off at the adjacent Recycling Center in the DCS Yard. Don’t worry about paper clips, staples, or envelope windows, but no metal hanging files; clear scotch tape is acceptable, but not masking or duct tape.
