Rotary slates Shredding day
The Rotary Club of New Milford will host its annual spring cleanup community document shredding day May 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Lore’s Plaza parking lot along Route 7.
Residents are invited to bring documents such as old papers, pay stubs, receipts, bank statements, invoices, canceled checks, tax forms, medical records and credit card statements for shredding in the mobile shredder.
Staples and paper clips may be intact.
Assistance will be available to help unload boxes.
The shredded material will go directly to recycling mills to be made into paper products.
Staff from the shredding company, FileShred, LLC, will handle the documents and will shred them while participants watch.
Last year, approximately 12,000 pounds of paper was collected and shredded and recycled to make new paper products.
Over 100,000 pounds of paper have been shredded to date, saving over 1,000 trees.
The cost is $10 per standard copy paper-type box; larger boxes will cost a little more. Proceeds will benefit Rotary Club projects.
