The event is hosted by the Montclair Office of Environmental Affairs and is free for all residents.

Some people are concerned about recycling their personal documents such as tax forms, medical records, financial information or business transactions. These recyclable papers often end up getting thrown away as garbage, but that disposal is very expensive.

We instead earn money for recycled paper, so we need to capture all of these unwanted documents. Now residents can watch their private papers be destroyed, while still recycling this valuable material.

A paper-shredding truck will be provided free of charge; residents just drive in and unload their personal files. Bring paper in a reusable container, or in paper bags, but no plastic bags!

So, you can recycle more, save some money, and clear out all those unneeded documents from your home, all at the 2016 Montclair Shred-Fest!

Remember: confidential paper documents only; regular paper recycling is collected curbside, or can be dropped off at the adjacent Recycling Center in the DCS Yard. Don't worry about paper clips, staples, or envelope windows, but no metal clasps or hanging files; clear scotch tape is acceptable, but not masking or duct tape.

For further information, contact the office of Environmental Affairs at (973) 509-5721 or grussell@montclairnjusa.org."
