Spring Shred-A-Thon

  • Date: 04/26/2018 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Location: University Place (behind Silver Spot Theater off Willow Drive)

Spring Shred-A-Thons for Orange County, April 26 and 28. Limit of FOUR bags or boxes
Two free shred- a-thons will be held by Orange County Solid Waste Management this spring in cooperation with local law enforcement and University Place:

  • Thursday, April 26 at University Place behind the Silver Spot Theater off Willow Drive in Chapel Hill. This is a park and walk up service. 
  • Saturday, April 28 at the Recycling Drop-off site behind Home Depot at Hampton Pointe in Hillsborough, with drive-through service. 

Both events are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.   Events are restricted to residents and small businesses in Orange County and that part of the Town of Chapel Hill in Durham County, as well as employees of the County and the Towns of Carrboro, Chapel Hill and Hillsborough.

Each participant is limited to four bags or boxes of confidential paper to prevent overloading of truck capacity. Participants can do their part by limiting the type of paper they bring for shredding to only those documents that are truly confidential in nature such as financial or medical records. 

Non-confidential paper should be recycled in blue carts or drop off sites, not taken to the shred-a-thon. A name and address alone do not constitute confidential information.  Leave out folders, magazines, envelopes, brochures, and other non-confidential paper. This will help ensure capacity for everyone’s truly confidential paper. Incidental tape and staples are OK but please -- no plastics, metals, digital media, and other non-paper items either. 

Special thanks to the Tom Struckmeyer office of Edward Jones Financial Advisors for sponsoring the Hillsborough Shred-a-thon this spring.
