Just in time for spring cleaning, the Rotary Club of Madison will host another Community Shredding Day on Saturday, May 19 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at municipal parking lot no. 1, on the corner of Prospect Street and Kings Road near the police station.

Security Shredding, Inc. will provide secure, on site destruction of sensitive documents with its truck-mounted shredder, and the shredded papers will then be recycled into other paper products. Those interested in these services are invited to stay and watch their unneeded paperwork get chopped.

This community event is free and open to public. All area residents can participate.

Shredding fees are $5 per box or grocery bag. Prices vary for larger containers. As this service is also a fundraiser, all shredding proceeds will be “recycled” by the Madison Rotary for future community projects.

Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore truck will also be on hand for area residents interested in donation new or gently used home building materials, lighting and plumbing fixtures, hardware items in original packaging, fine art and collectibles, furniture and other home furnishings, as long as they are in excellent condition.

Having the ReStore truck in Madison for this event makes it easy for would-be donors to get rid of these items in their hometown instead of visiting the ReStore in Randolph, according to Madison Rotary.

All ReStore inventory is donated by businesses and individuals and sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build affordable homes in Morris County and surrounding areas.  

Since 2007, ReStore donations have been used to build 18 homes throughout Morris County and have kept more than 5,100 tons of reusable materials out of landfills, according to Jeannie Tsukamoto, former president of Madison Rotary and Morris Habitat for Humanity.

According to Jeannie Tsukamoto, former President of both Madison Rotary and Morris Habitat for Humanity, “donations to ReStore have built 18 homes in Morris County and have kept over 5,100 tons of reusable materials out of landfills since 2007.”
