Smithtown Shreds 7.76 Tons of Paper

Shred Event

Over Seven Tons of Personal Documents Successfully Shredded

On Saturday, September 17th, over 250 residents delivered more than 7.76 tons of paper documents at the Town of Smithtown Municipal Services Facility during the second shredding event of 2022. The bi-annual event is hosted free of charge for residents, courtesy of the Smithtown Department of Environment and Waterways, Municipal Services Facility, and the Department of Public Safety.


Over the course of Saturday, a total of 256 vehicles pulled into Smithtown’s Municipal Services Facility to safely and securely dispose of 7.76 tons of sensitive documents. The record attendance and weight for this event was held in September of 2020, with 440 households and more than 16 tons of sensitive documents safely shredded. Due to the peak of the Coronavirus Pandemic in April of 2020, the Town only hosted one shredding event that year. 


A steady stream of residents arrived at Smithtown’s Municipal Services Facility throughout the day to dispose of personal documents, which were then safely destroyed by the Data Shredding Service, Inc. “Shreddersaurus.”

 

The Department of Environment and Waterways and Municipal Services Facility provided additional support staff to assist with moving vehicles along. Residents were pleased with the service and no wait times. All of the paper material was safely shredded by Data Shredding Service, Inc. using the “Shreddersaurus.” 


The September Shred Event was hosted at the Municipal Services Facility located at 85 Old Northport Road in Kings Park from 9:00AM through 3:00PM. Data Shredding Service, Inc. is a full-service confidential shredding service located on Corporate Drive in Hauppauge. The 2023 paper shredding events are being planned and will be announced in the 2023 refuse and recycling calendar.
