Shredding personal documents serves a double purpose-- to recycle paper as well as protect sensitive information against identity theft -- the fastest growing crime in the nation. Westchester residents may bring confidential personal papers for shredding to any one of the following events. Residents can bring up to four file-sized (10”x12”x15”) boxes of confidential papers per household. Remove all large binder clips and covers. Papers from businesses, institutions or commercial enterprises are not acceptable and will be rejected, as will any junk mail or newspapers.
Important InformationService at the events works on a first-come-first-served basis, as the Mobile Shredder unit can reach its maximum capacity before closing time.
It is important to be aware of what you place the paper to be shredded, no matches, lighters or anything combustible. Staff at the events will be checking the material prior to being shredded.
Residents are required to stay in their vehicles. Staff will attend to you. This is for your own safety. No walk ups, please.
In extreme weather, events may be cancelled or terminated early. Please call the county's Recycling Helpline at (914) 813-5425 to check on a cancellation or early closure.
