Opportunities to dispose of old documents safely 

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County has scheduled four spring 2013 Paper Shredding events in local communities so that Monmouth County residents have opportunities to get rid of old documents and confidential files safely.

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

  • Saturday, May 11 – Oceanport Municipal Building, 222 Monmouth Blvd., Oceanport
  • Saturday, May 18 – Wagner Farm Park, corner of Woodville Rd. & Baird Rd., Millstone
  • Saturday, June 1 – Colts Neck Town Hall, 124 Cedar Dr., Colts Neck
  • Saturday, June 22 – Parking lot at the intersection of W. Front St. & American Legion Dr., near the waterfront, Keyport

“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 may bring up to 100 lbs. to be shredded. The shredding event will stop once the shredding truck is full. All papers will be shredded on location in the mobile truck. Documents should be free of large binder clips; staples and paper clips may be left on documents. 

This is a project of the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders and partner municipalities.

Information about these paper shredding events, recycling and removing other items from the county’s waste stream may be obtained from the county’s Web site at www.visitmonmouth.com or by calling 732-431-7460, ext. 6721.
