New Bedford Regional Waste Management Announces Fall Paper Shredding Day – New Bedford Guide


A fall paper shredding day is Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 9 a.m. to noon, or until the shredding truck fills up. Everyone is welcome; there is no residency requirement. Individuals may bring up to two boxes of paper. The event will take place at the New Bedford High School parking lot, 230 Hathaway Boulevard, New Bedford. Enter Parker Street.

“Identity theft is a growing concern. Everyone must be vigilant about the protection of personal information. Shredding your documents is a great way to protect you and your family, NBCU is proud to sponsor these community shredding days. said Berta Varao, President and CEO of NBCU.

The shredding truck can only take a certain amount of paper, so the two box limit allows Paper Shredding Day to serve more people. The event will end when the shredding truck is full. it may be before noon. Each box should weigh no more than 30 to 40 pounds. Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed, but please remove paper from folders and filing cabinets.

When each attendee reaches the shredding truck, staff will remove the boxes from the trunk of your vehicle, empty them into a recycling bin, and return the boxes to attendees. The trash is emptied into the Shred-it truck. Shred-it is certified by the National Association for Information Destruction and adheres to their strict security practices and procedures. For security reasons, participants cannot attend the destruction of their paper.

Shredding confidential documents helps prevent identity theft, protect personal information, and prevent valuable resources from being sent to landfill. Shredded paper will be recycled into new products such as paper towels.

The event is sponsored by NBCU and hosted in partnership with the Town of New Bedford, City of Dartmouth and Greater New Bedford Regional Waste Management District.
