â€œWe are happy to provide these events for responsible paper disposal and to help residents reduce the potential for identity theft,â€ Freeholder Serena DiMaso said. â€œThe county is proactivelyÂ removing paperÂ and other recyclables from the waste stream as a way to extend the life of the ReclamationCenter in Tinton Falls. We appreciate residents doing their part.â€
Residents may bring up to 100 lbs. of paper to be shredded. Documents should be free of largeÂ binder clips; staples and paper clips may be left on documents. All papers will be shredded on location inÂ the mobileÂ truck. The shredding event will stop once the shredding truck is full.
â€œThe Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders partners with municipalities to bringÂ these eventsÂ into the community,â€ Freeholder Lillian G. Burry said. â€œThis is one of the great programsÂ and servicesÂ provided by the countyâ€™sÂ DivisionÂ of Planning.â€
