MONTCLAIR, NJ - Montclair residents doing some spring cleaning can celebrate Earth Day 2018, and enjoy the peace of mind from seeing their confidential documents securely shredded, while saving money and boosting recycling.

The annual “Montclair Shred-Fest!” will be held on Saturday, April 28, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at the Community Services Yard, 219 North Fullerton Avenue. This event is hosted by the Montclair Office of Environmental Affairs, and is free for all residents.

A paper-shredding truck will be provided; residents drive in and unload up to four (4) boxes or bags of their personal files. Bring paper in reusable containers, or in paper bags or cardboard boxes – up to 20 lbs. each – but not plastic bags.

Remember: confidential paper documents only; regular paper recycling is collected curbside, or can be dropped off on Saturdays at the Recycling Center in the DCS Yard.

This free service is for your personal papers only, not for business documents.
Don't worry about paper clips, staples, or envelope windows, but remove any metal clasps or hanging files; clear scotch tape is acceptable, but not masking or duct tape.
