Paper Shredding Program
Paper Shredding Events
Free Community Paper Shredding Events

The Montgomery County Commissioners in conjunction with Shred One Security Corp. sponsor community paper shredding events.

Montgomery County residents who have paper and documents that should be shredded are encouraged to take advantage of this free event. No businesses are permitted. Residents are urged to make sure that the materials they present for shredding do not include plastic, cardboard, or metal. However, there is no need to remove staples, paper clips, or hanging folders.

“Shredding of documents has become important in our lives today for several reasons, not the least of which is the threat of identity theft,” said Josh Shapiro, chairman of the Montgomery County Commissioners. “We believe this service is useful, necessary, and will be appreciated by our residents, and we are very grateful to Shred One for their assistance.”

Shred One regularly participates in community shredding events. Mobile trucks perform all of the paper shredding as you watch. All shredded paper is recycled by Shred One and the company is currently recycling paper at a rate that saves over 70,000 trees annually.

Please check your township website for possible additional paper shredding events.
