All papers will be shredded on location in the mobile trucks and the event will end once the mobile trucks are full or its scheduled end time. Large binder clips must be removed from documents; staples and paper clips can remain.
“These free events not only help residents declutter their homes but also can protect their personal information that may be on files such as bank statements, medical records, legal documents and utility bills from identity thieves," said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering.
