The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders announces that the next mobile paper-shredding event for personal documents will take place on Saturday, October 7 in Scotch Plains. The events are free for all Union County residents.

“Union County’s free document shredding service helps residents fight identity theft, by providing a secure, convenient way to dispose of sensitive documents,” says Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen. “This program also complements our other green initiatives by promoting recycling and environmental conservation.”

The October 7 shredding event will take place at the Union County Vocational Technical School, located at 1776 Raritan Road in Scotch Plains, rain or shine.

The next shredding will be offered on Thursday, October 12 at Galloping Hill Golf Course, located at 3 Golf Drive in Kenilworth.

Both shredding events will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Shredding events may end before 1:00 pm if the shredding trucks reach capacity.

All Union County residents are eligible to use the paper-shredding service. Participants should bring their documents in paper bags, and must remove plastic bindings and paper clips. All documents must be dry and unbound.

In an effort to accommodate everyone, there is a limit of four 10-pound bags or boxes per person. Residents should use their municipal recycling program to dispose of magazines, mailers and other non-confidential papers. A list of recycling contacts for all 21 municipalities in Union County is available at ucnj.org/recycle.

The mobile shredding program is funded through the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Recycling Enhancement Act Grant Funds. For directions to the October shredding events, and for information on all Union County recycling programs, call the Union County Recycling Hotline at 908-654-9889 or visit online at ucnj.org/recycle.
