Free paper-shredding at Cedar Brook Park Friday


Union County's free paper shredding service travels to Plainfield tomorrow for an event at Cedar Brook Park on Friday from 9 AM to 1 PM.

The program, offered by the Board of Chosen Freeholders, is meant to provide a means of disposal for sensitive personal and confidential documents. It is open to all residents of Union County.

To accommodate everyone wishing to use the service, there is a limit of four ten-pound boxes or bags per person. Documents should not be bound and should have plastic binders or paper clips removed. Paper that is wet or damp will not be accepted. Residents are encouraged to continue to recycle non-sensitive documents and magazines through their community's recycling efforts.

NEXCUT Shredding of Teaneck, which is under contract to Union County, will put the documents into 96-gallon containers which are then dumped onto a conveyor belt and shredded on site. Visitors may watch the entire process on a closed-circuit TV.

The mobile shredding program is paid for by a grant from the NJDEP.

For more information about recycling, or future events, call the Recycling Hotline at (908) 654-9889 or visit the website at
