FLORENCE, NJ – Burlington County will be holding another paper shredding event this weekend so that County residents can safely dispose of papers and documents, especially those with sensitive information. 

The free event will take place on Sunday, May 16 from 9AM to 1PM at the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex, also known as the landfill, in Florence.

The shredding event will be "drive-up" style. Attendees must remain in their cars, with masks worn at all times. The paper must be placed in the trunk, cargo area or truck bed and must be easily accessible to staff, who will remove it from the vehicle.
