Shredding and recycling will be taking place in Burlington County Sept. 20

Burlington County Freeholder Director Bruce Garganio announced today that residents will have the opportunity to bring their confidential documents and used electronics for shredding and recycling on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event will be held at the Resource Recovery Complex, 22000 Columbus Road in Mansfield, due to single-stream construction.

“We are reminding residents that the event will be temporarily moved to the Resource Recovery Complex while construction continues over at OTC involving our single-stream project,” said Freeholder Director Garganio. “The event will be user friendly like it always has been with plenty of volunteers on hand to accept recyclables.”

Residents are urged to bring only “confidential” documents for shredding, such as bank and credit card statements, tax returns, papers with account numbers or social security numbers. Recyclables will be shredded on-site and should not be brought already-shredded. Up to four bags or boxes per household will be accepted.

“At previous events, there have been residents bringing non-confidential documents such as junk mail, magazines, and catalogs,” said Freeholder Director Garganio. “These types of papers should be recycled at the curb or municipal drop-off.”
