Shred Event at Fremont Township

We have scheduled a document shredding event for Saturday, June 22 from 8:30 am til 11:30 am. You will enter through the highway department at 22376 Erhart Road.

You may bring the equivalent of 3 boxes to shred. Staples and paper clips are fine. We will not accept any binders or hanging file folders or electronic items because they catch on fire in the truck.

The most efficient way is to place your items in a paper grocery bag. No plastic bags. To keep the line moving, you will not be able to exit your car and watch the shredding.

This shredding event is for documents only. Please recycle your coupons, magazines and junk mail with your weekly recycling. They will not be accepted.

Pop your trunk and we will take the items. Do not leave your car.

We will not accept any binders or hanging file folders or electronic items because they catch on fire in the truck. If the truck fills up before 11:30, the event will be over.

We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your patience.

Recycle Bedding, Shoes, Flags and Eyeglasses in our Shed

Recycle bedding and items for the dogs, (leashes, collars, toys, pet food etc.), shoes, yarn, American flags, eyeglasses and hearing aids in the shed in our front parking lot.
