The annual spring Shred It and Forget It event for St. Peters and Cottleville residents will be held from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, May 11 at the Health and Environmental Services Building, 135 Ecology Drive.
Mobile shredders will be on site to securely destroy and recycle unneeded documents at no cost to residents. There is a limit of five banker-size boxes per vehicle. Additional boxes can be shredded at a cost of $5 per box.
Non-residents can recycle documents for a $5 fee per box, with cash payments only. All shredded material will be recycled, including the cardboard boxes if residents do not need them.
Do not bring computer discs or hanging file rods. Documents can contain staples or paper clips.
A Resident Privilege Card must be presented to receive the free service. They can be obtained at City Hall, the Rec-Plex and Recycle City.
Interested residents also can receive a free Bald Cypress, Redbud and/or Gray Dogwood tree, with planting instructions, while dropping off their paper for recycling. The city of St. Peters’ Parks, Recreation and Arts Advisory Board will hand out the seedlings to help celebrate Arbor Day. St. Peters residents who bring a Resident Privilege Card can take advantage of the tree giveaway during the early time between 9-10 a.m. After 10 a.m., trees will be given out to everyone [including non-residents] on a first-come, first-served basis.
