[ARCHIVED] Freeholder Director Tom Pullion Announces First Paper Shredding Event of 2019


Burlington County residents will once again have an opportunity to recycle their confidential documents at the first free paper shredding event of the year on Sunday, March 24, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex in Florence. The event is hosted by the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the County’s Recycling Office.

“The Freeholder Board is proud to continue offering this great county service to our residents,” said Freeholder Director Pullion. “In 2018, residents collected approximately 222,000 pounds of confidential documents for shredding, exceeding the 205,141 pounds collected in 2017.”

Confidential documents acceptable for on-site shredding include bank and credit card statements, tax returns, and papers with account numbers or social security numbers. Please, NO binders, plastic folders, computer disks or plastic credit cards.

Up to four bags or boxes per car will be accepted. Already-shredded paper can also be recycled. 

Once again, volunteers will be on hand to unload confidential files while residents remain in the comfort of their cars.

“I encourage residents to take advantage of this service and hope that, together, we can make 2019 another record-breaking year,” concluded Director Pullion.

This free event is for Burlington County residents only. ID is required. No businesses, please.

The Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex is located at 22000 Burlington-Columbus Road, Florence, NJ 08518. Dates and locations for additional shredding events will be announced in the coming weeks. You can download the free RecycleCoach App and receive notifications of upcoming shredder events.
