Free shredding event scheduled for Oct. 19

Press release from Medford Township.

Free shredding event on Oct. 19 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon at the Municipal Garage, located at 2 Commonwealth Drive. (off of Gravelly Hollow Road behind Bob Meyer Park).

This event is for Medford Township residents only. Absolutely no businesses will be permitted.

Protect yourself and your family from identity theft and financial fraud while taking steps to help the township’s recycling program. Residents may bring up to five boxes or bags of files (no exceptions) to be shredded on site. An experienced operator will be present with a highly secure, mobile shredding unit where your confidential materials will be shredded as you watch.

Please bring paper only; plastic bags, metal, binders and binder clips cannot be shredded. Paper clips and staples are acceptable. One-hundred percent of the paper is recycled and is applied to Medford’s recycling totals, for which we obtain grants from the state under the Clean Communities Program and Recycling Tonnage Grant. As these dates are the third Saturday of the month, the garage is also open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accept all other waste and recycling materials.

For more information, call Judy Scherf, Recycling Coordinator, at (609) 654-6791 x322.
