St. Peters residents can save a tree and plant a tree at the city of St. Peters’ annual Shred It and Forget It event on May 1.
The Shred It and Forget It event will take place from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, May 1 at the Environmental Services Building, 135 Ecology Drive. St. Peters residents with valid Resident Privilege Cards can have their documents shredded and recycled by mobile shredders at no cost.
Mobile shredders will be on site to securely destroy and recycle unneeded documents. There is a limit of five banker-size boxes per vehicle. All shredded material will be recycled, including the cardboard boxes. Documents can contain staples or paper clips; however, computer discs and hanging file rods are not allowed.
Beginning at 9 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis, the city will celebrate Arbor Day by handing out free Redbud and Dogwood to St. Peters residents. A certified arborist will be present to answer any questions.
St. Peters residents can obtain a Resident Privilege Card prior to the event at City Hall, the Rec-Plex and Recycle City during office hours.
