Opportunities to dispose of old documents safely 

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County has scheduled five spring 2012 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, March 24 – Atlantic Highlands, Sutton Walk Tennis Court, Parking lot at the Municipal Harbor
  • Sunday, April 15 – Belmar, Dempsey Park, 16th and Railroad Avenue
  • Saturday, April 28 – Freehold Township Municipal Building Parking lot at One Municipal Plaza
  • Saturday, May 5 – Neptune Township Recycling Center, 2201 Heck Ave.
  • Saturday, May 19 – Tinton Falls Municipal Complex, 556 Tinton Avenue

“We are happy to provide these events for responsible paper disposal and to help residents reduce the potential for identity theft,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry. “The county continues to be proactive in removing recyclables from our waste stream and we encourage residents to do their part to help by making use of other county services for proper waste disposal as well.”

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 Monmouth County Planning Board section of the county’s Web site at www.visitmonmouth.com or by calling 732-431-7460.
