Orange County Solid Waste Management will hold two free Shred-A-Thons for confidential paper this spring. Bring your confidential papers for free, safe, and contact-free shredding.
The event is open to residents of Orange County and Carrboro, small businesses, and local government employees.
Shred-A-Thons will be held on the following days:
- Saturday, April 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Eubanks Road Park and Ride Lot, 1768 Eubanks Road, Chapel Hill
- Saturday, May 1, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the recycling site behind Home Depot, 625 Hampton Pointe, Hillsborough
There is a limit of four boxes per person. Remove any plastic or metal items--staples are okay. Wearing a mask is required, and you must handle your own paper. No on-site help will be available.
Please bring confidential papers only (no newspapers, magazines, or catalogs). Recycle non-confidential paper in blue carts or at recycling drop-off sites.
