CLARK, NJ – Union County's next mobile paper-shredding program for confidential personal documents will be available on Wednesday, June 4, at the Clark DPW facility in Clark (315 Westfield Avenue). The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine, although it could end earlier if the shredding truck reaches capacity. All Union County residents are eligible to use the service.
“Union County’s mobile document-shredding service helps residents fight identity theft and eliminate clutter in their homes,” said Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak, liaison to the Solid Waste Advisory Council. “It is a cost-effective way to assist our recycling efforts and it ties in with Union County’s other Go Green Initiatives.”
In an effort to accommodate everyone, there is a limit of four, 10-pound bags or boxes per person. Documents should not be bound. Please remove plastic binders and paperclips. Paper that is wet/damp will not be accepted. Residents should continue to recycle non-confidential papers and magazines with their municipal recycling program.
