Shred Day is Sept. 17

The next Shred Day is Saturday, Sept. 17, from 9 a.m. to noon at Memorial Park, 14600 State Road. Here are a few reminders to help ensure everything goes smoothly. Shred materials are limited to five standard-size cardboard boxes or paper bags. Please, no plastic bags or containers that must be returned to the vehicle, as this slows the line. We ask that residents remain in their vehicles and have shred materials ready to go in their open trunk. As a reminder, residents must bring proper identification, such as a Driver's License, to verify residency.

ACCEPTED ITEMS: financial documents, bank statements, tax returns, credit card statements, expired credit cards, insurance forms and records, junk mail, family records and confidential information. Staples and small paper clips are OK.

NOT ACCEPTED: newspapers, phone books, magazines, binders, books, pendaflex folders, food and candy wrappers, wax paper, photographs, napkins and Styrofoam containers.

Newspapers, phone books and magazines should be recycled as part of the weekly curbside program, not Shred Day.
