The free, touchless document shredding event is for Coral Springs residents only.

Here’s what you need to know about the event, according to the city:

- All residents will be required to place their drivers’ licenses on the front dashboard as they pull up in their cars.   

- There is a limit of four file size cardboard boxes or reusable bins per vehicle, and plastic/garbage bags will not be accepted.

- Boxes and bins cannot be larger than 15x12x10 and must be in the trunk or in an area easily accessible to ensure no interaction with event staff (no walk-up shredding available).

- For this event, the police department will not accept additional boxes for a donation to the city’s community programs.

- Residents are asked to make sure there is no trash or other items, such as plastic or metal rings, bingers or clamps, in boxes.
- This is a first-come, first-serve event. Once the truck reaches capacity, no additional paperwork will be accepted.
If there’s bad weather, the event will be rescheduled. For more information, call 954-344-1833 or visit.
