MADISON, NJ - A community shredding event, sponsored by the Madison Rotary Club will take place on Saturday October 12 from 9am - 12noon. The event is open to the public and will take place in the Municipal Parking Lot #1, at the corner of Prospect Street and Kings Road. 

Security Shredding, Inc. will provide secure destruction of sensitive documents, after which the shredded papers will be recycled into other paper products. The cost is $5 per box or grocery bag. Larger containers will be accepted and  priced accordingly. All proceeds from the shredding event will be “recycled” by the Madison Rotary for future community projects.

During the event, residents are also encouraged to donate to the Habitat for Humanity's ReStore. The organization will be accepting new or gently used home building materials, lighting and plumbing fixtures, hardware items in original packaging, fine art and collectibles, and furniture and other home furnishings in excellent condition. ReStore’s inventory is 100% donated by businesses and individuals and sold to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build affordable homes in Morris County and surrounding areas.
