By on May 31, 2013

NEW JERSEY – The Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be holding its upcoming Paper Shredding & Recycling Program on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Passaic County Para-Transit Facility parking lot, 1310 Route 23 North (behind Ski Barn), Wayne, N.J, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine. This program is free of charge to Passaic County residents, who may bring up to 6 “banker boxes” worth (10 inches high by 13 inches wide by 16 inches long) of personal paper items to be confidentially shredded and recycled.

Material accepted for shredding includes: tax returns, credit card statements, old checks, medical information (no x-rays), bank statements, utility bills, computer print-outs, copy paper (all colors), envelopes, letterhead and stationary. Unacceptable material includes binders, plastics, overnight shipping envelopes, photographs, carbon paper, and non-paper items. Participants should be prepared to take with them the receptacles that their documents were brought in, i.e. boxes, bags, etc. after discarding their documents for shredding.

According to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager, participants may watch their documents on camera as they are securely shredded and recycled by the vendor, Information Destruction Systems LLC (IDS), a subsidiary of Atlantic Coast Fibers of Passaic, N.J. “With tax season hopefully behind most of us, this is a great time for Passaic County residents to clear out those unwanted but very personal documents, knowing that they will be securely destroyed and recycled. We are pleased to be able to offer this program free of charge and hope that many people will take advantage of this valuable service,” Seiden said.
