MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - The Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders in conjunction with the Borough of South Plainfield will sponsor a FREE paper shredding event on Saturday, September 26, at the Community Pool parking lot, next to the PAL Building, 1250 Maple Avenue.    Residents of Middlesex County can bring confidential papers – old files, receipts, bills, financial statements – to be shredded for recycling.  There is no need to remove staples or paper clips. The mobile truck shreds the paper on-site, so residents can watch their papers being destroyed. 

The truck will be at the Community Pool parking lot from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or until it fills up. No more than five file boxes or 100 pounds of paper will be accepted. Be prepared to take home your boxes and cartons. Do not bring plastic bags.

Do not bring junk mail, books, magazines or newspapers.  These should be placed at the curb in the blue recycling bin, or brought to the Borough’s Recycling Center on Kenneth Avenue.  Do not bring anything made of plastic. Contact the Middlesex County Division of Solid Waste Management at solidwaste@co.middlesex.nj.us or call (732) 745-4170 for more information.
