Passaic County Shredding & Recycling Program to Take Place in Paterson

Passaic County Shredding & Recycling Program to Take Place in Paterson

The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be holding its next Confidential Document Shredding & Recycling Program in the parking lot of Lambert Castle located at 3 Valley Road, Paterson, N.J. on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine. This program is free of charge to Passaic County residents who may bring up to 6 “banker’s boxes” worth (10 inches high by 13 inches wide by 16 inches long) of personal paper items to be confidentially shredded and recycled, although material can be brought in the container of choice. Participants must take with them the receptacles that their documents were brought in, i.e. boxes, bags, etc. after discarding their documents for shredding.

Material accepted for shredding includes: tax returns, credit card statements, old checks, medical information (no x-rays), bank statements, utility bills, computer print-outs, copy paper (all colors), envelopes, letterhead and stationary. Unacceptable material includes binders, plastics, overnight shipping envelopes, photographs, carbon paper, and non-paper items

According to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager, participants may watch their documents on camera as they are securely shredded and recycled by the vendor, All-Shred of Paterson, N.J. “This is a great free service for Passaic County residents to clean out their unwanted personal documents, knowing that they will be securely destroyed and recycled. Passaic County is pleased to bring this program to another area of the County and hopes that many people will take advantage of this valuable service,” Seiden said. Residential material only – no commercially generated material will be accepted. For further information, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738.
