County announces 2019 paper shredding dates
Multiple opportunities to dispose of old documents safely

FREEHOLD, NJ – Monmouth County has scheduled twelve upcoming 2019 Paper Shredding events in local communities so that residents have opportunities to get rid of old documents and confidential files safely.

“Identity theft continues to be an ongoing issue for all,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County’s Reclamation Center. “Providing residents with opportunities to shred their confidential documents will only help them protect their personal information.”

All shredding events run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The dates and locations are as follows:

  • Sunday, April 7 – Holmdel; DPW Yard, 14 Crawfords Corner Rd.
  • Saturday, May 18 – Howell; Memorial/Adelphia Schools, 485 Adelphia Rd.
