The Rotary Club of New Milford is hosting a Spring Cleanup Document Shredding Day today with Secure Eco Shred. They will be in Lore's Plaza parking lot on Route 7 from 10am to 1pm with a massive mobile shredder. Boxes of documents, pay stubs, receipts, bank statements, medical records, credit and the like will be shredded. There's no need to remove staples or paperclips.
Last year approximately 12,000 pounds of paper was collected and shredded which was recycled into paper products. This prevented over six tons of paper from being added to the landfill and translated into 130 trees that did not have to be cut down.
The cost is $10.00 per standard copy paper-type box. All money collected will be donated to the New Milford Rotary Club and will be used to help senior citizens, schools, scholarships, environmental and other local projects.
