[ARCHIVED] Freeholder Director Kate Gibbs Announces Free Paper Shredding Event This Sunday


Burlington County residents will have an opportunity to recycle their confidential documents at a free paper shredding event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Sunday, September 9, 2018 at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex in Florence, Freeholder Director Kate Gibbs said today. The highly anticipated shredding events held throughout the year are hosted by Freeholder Director Gibbs and the County’s Recycling Office.

“A record-breaking 4,200 residents have participated in our shredding events so far this year, recycling more than 125,000 pounds of confidential documents,” said Freeholder Director Gibbs, who added that the shredding events are one small part of the County’s initiative to ensure residents are recycling right. “I am thrilled this free and convenient service is becoming more and more popular every year.”

Residents can bring confidential documents such as bank and credit card statements, tax returns, and papers with account numbers or social security numbers for on-site shredding. Binders, plastic folders, computer disks, and plastic credit cards are not permitted.

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 help unload confidential files while residents remain in the comfort of their cars. Additionally, a textile drop-off for gently used clothing and linens will be available on Sunday.

The free event is for Burlington County residents only. ID is required. No businesses are permitted.

The Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex is located at 22000 Burlington-Columbus Road, Florence, NJ 08518.
