  • What to shred:
    • Two boxes of documents on any office paper
    • File folders
      (no need to remove staples, rubber bands, paper clips or binder clips)
  • What will not be accepted:
    • Cardboard, plastics, metals or 3-ring binders
    • CDs or DVDs
    • Trash
    • Hazardous materials

All documents will be shredded on-site and recycled.
