Shred or Plant? Why not both?


Aging cherry trees at the Library will be replaced.

Confidential documents can be shredded and recycled.
 
Plainfielders have two options this Arbor Day morning, both good for the environment -- no matter how you define that term.
CHERRY TREE PLANTING AT THE LIBRARY, 11 AM

Plainfield's Shade Tree Commission and the Plainfield Public Library will celebrate Arbor Day with the planting of new cherry trees to replace some that have lived well beyond their better years. The flowering cherries make a distinctive entryway for the Library each spring, and soften the somewhat harsh angularity of the landmark building, which is a modern interpretation of a classic Greek temple in the style of mid-20th century architect Edward Durell Stone. Kindergarteners will be on hand to help.


PAPER SHREDDING AT CEDAR BROOK PARK, 9 AM - 1 PM

Union County's mobile paper-shredding program comes to Cedar Brook Park. Union County residents may bring up to four 10-lb. boxes or bags to be shredded. The program is intended for confidential materials that one would not simply put in the recycles (think old tax records and legal documents). You may watch your documents being shredded over the closed-circuit television system. No plastic binders. This is not the place to recycle old magazines, which should be bundled and put out on Wednesays with your regular recylables.

If you plan carefully, you can make both events.
