The Somerset County Board of Freeholders and the county’s Records Management Division invite residents to mark their calendars and start collecting documents for easy, no-hassle shredding, starting April 15, 2017.
Shredding events will be held on 10 Saturdays through the “Operation Secure Shred” program, rain or shine. The first event will be hosted by Somerset County and subsequent events will be hosted by various municipalities. All shredding events are held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until the trucks are filled to capacity, at which time they leave and the event is over for that day.
The kick-off shredding event will be held April 15 at the South County Public Works Garage, located at 410 Roycefield Road in Hillsborough. Nine subsequent events will be hosted by participating municipalities around the county, with assistance from Somerset County as follows: April 29 in Hillsborough at the Auten Road School–281 Auten Road; July 8 in Somerset at the Franklin Township Municipal Building–475 DeMott Lane; July 15 in Bedminster at the Public Works Building–75 Miller Lane; July 29 in Bridgewater at the Municipal Building–100 Commons Way; Aug. 26 in Raritan at the Washington School-614 First Ave.
