Monmouth County Sets Fall Paper Shredding Days

Paper shredding days will be held in Wall, Manasquan, Keansburg and Shrewsbury this fall.

Residents will have the opportunity to dispose of old documents and confidential files safely, as Monmouth County has scheduled five paper-shredding days for the fall.

All shredding events will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. as follows:

  • Saturday, Sept. 7 — Wall Township Municipal Complex, 2700 Allaire Rd.
  • Saturday, Sept. 21 — Manasquan 4th Avenue parking
  • Sunday, Sept. 29 — Keansburg High School, 190 Port Monmouth Rd.
  • Saturday, Oct. 19 — Boro of Shrewsbury Municipal Complex, 419 Sycamore Ave.
  • Saturday, Nov. 2 — Freehold Township Municipal Complex, 1 Municipal Plaza

“We are happy to offer these events for responsible paper disposal which will help residents reduce the risk of identity theft,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Serena DiMaso. “The County continues to be proactive in removing recyclables from our waste stream and we encourage residents to do their part by making use of these events and all other county services for proper waste disposal.”

County residents can bring up to 100 lbs. of paper to shred, which will take place in a mobile truck. Shredding will stop once the truck is full.

Documents should be free of large binder clips. Staples and paper clips may be left on documents.

Could this just be another ploy by our government to gain access to more of our personal files .....Dispose your own ,burn or shred yourself .

I think it's a great way to dispose of personal information, you see the stuff get shredded. Home shredders take waaaayy to long to shred a box full of paper.
