[ARCHIVED] Town of Smithtown to Host Paper Shredding Event

Shred Event

Safely Shred Sensitive Documents at the Shredding Event on April 10th

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, April 10th. 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. There is a limit of three file boxes per vehicle.

 

“This has become an increasingly popular event for the community. Residents can safely and securely dispose of unwanted documents from the comfort of their vehicles in time for a good Spring cleaning. The process, orchestrated by DEW, MSF and Public Safety, is seamless... so residents can get in and out fast, while doing their part in protecting the environment.” - Ed Wehrheim, Town of Smithtown Supervisor 

 

In 2020, over 440 households came down to safely shred sensitive documents in the Fall. The September 2020 event was the largest to date, with over 16 tons of paper safely shredded by the industrial strength “Shreddersaurus.” The turnout was three times the normal volume. The previously scheduled April 2020 shred event was canceled due to the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

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