Document Destruction Guidelines

  • Paper documents must be brought to the event in either paper shopping bags or boxes – no plastic bags! There is a limit of six paper shopping bags or file-size boxes per vehicle.
  • Paper must be free of contamination, such as metal clips, plastic sleeves, folders and binders.
  • Workers will remove paper from vehicles to place in carts. Then documents will then be loaded into the shredding truck. The paper will be cross-shredded (on-site), baled and eventually recycled into new paper products.
