More Local Shredding Events
Thank you to all who came out to the shredding event sponsored by State Rep Nick Sauer on Saturday.  It was great to see so many people take advantage of the opportunity.  A huge thank you to our Fremont Cert Team for all of their help with this event.  We were able to recycle over 10,000 pounds of paper.  Because the truck filled up, we were not able to service all who came.  Below are some upcoming shredding opportunities.
