Town of Smithtown to Host Paper Shredding Event

Shred Event

Safely Shred Sensitive Documents at the Shredding Event on September 26th

The Town of Smithtown Department of Environment and Waterways, in partnership with the Municipal Services Facility and the Department of Public Safety, will host a Paper Shredding Event on Saturday, September 26th. This free event will be held at the Smithtown Municipal Services Facility, located at 85 Old Northport Road in Kings Park, from 9:00 AM through 3:00 PM. Residents will be asked to wear face masks and not to leave their cars, to protect everyone’s wellbeing amid the coronavirus. Proof of residency is required. 

“We were at the peak of the pandemic before our first scheduled shred event. So we are very pleased that we can offer residents the service of safely and securely disposing of unwanted documents this month. The process is always seamlessly orchestrated by DEW, MSF and Public Safety. Residents get in and out fast and have helped to do their part in protecting the environment.” - Ed Wehrheim, Town of Smithtown Supervisor 

In 2019, over 500 households came down to safely shred sensitive documents in the Summer and Fall. The September 2019 event was the largest to date, with over 12,580 pounds, or 6.3 tons, of paper safely shredded by the industrial strength “Shreddersaurus.”

All personal documents are safely destroyed by Data Shredding Service, Inc., a full-service confidential shredding service located on Corporate Drive in Hauppauge.
