O’Fallon’s Environmental Services Department is offering a Shred-It Day from 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday, May 15 at the Environmental Services building, 1550 Progress West Lane.
Documents should be placed in cardboard bankers’ boxes, or cardboard boxes of a similar size, and dropped off at the drive-through event. Boxes should not be too heavy to lift or filled to overflowing.
The service is free for residents for up to five bankers-sized boxes. Additional boxes will be accepted for a cost of $5 per box for any over the limit. Additionally, non-residents can drop off their paper for shredding for a cost of $5 per box.
Residents must bring photo identification showing O’Fallon residency and all trash customers must have their account in good standing in order to receive the free services. All of the material will be shredded including the boxes if they are not wanted back. The event is indoors, so it will be rain or shine.
If you can tear it, then you can shred it with this complimentary service. It is OK for documents to have staples or paper clips. Computer discs and hanging file rods are not permitted.
