Union County Free Shredding Events – New Providence

Union County Free Shredding Events – New Providence

Union County residents can bring their personal documents and sensitive papers to the next free paper shredding events sponsored by the Union County Board of County Commissioners during the month of June.

“The free shredding service makes it easy and convenient for Union County residents to dispose of sensitive documents while also supporting our countywide recycling efforts, and we encourage everyone to participate in our 2022 recycling programs,” said Commissioner Board Chair Rebecca Williams.

Each shredding event begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 1:00 p.m., rain or shine, but may finish earlier if the shredding trucks fill up to capacity.

The locations for June are:

  • Wednesday, June 1: Clark Public Works Facility (behind the Police Station), 315 Westfield Avenue, Clark
  • Saturday, June 11: Union County College, Parking Lots 5A and 5B, 1033 Springfield Avenue, Cranford
  • Saturday, June 25: Union County Vo-Tech, West Hall/Police Academy Parking Lot, 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains

Participants are reminded pre-shredded, damp, or wet paper will not be accepted. Bindings, large plastic or metal clips, and other paraphernalia should be removed.

These events are drive-up only and contact-free. Drivers must remain in their cars while staff unloads their papers, which are shredded on site in a mobile shredding truck.

Union County’s free shedding events are intended for personal, sensitive documents only. Residents can recycle magazines, junk mail and other waste paper with their municipal recycling program. For information, contact the municipal recycling coordinator.

Shredding event benefits two Langley high schools – Aldergrove Star

Shredding event benefits two Langley high schools - Aldergrove Star

The Ron Dunkley Memorial Society wants to help people declutter some of the paper they have that’s no longer needed but is still lying around the home.

The society will host a shredding event Saturday, April 30 that will not only help people safely get rid of the documents but also raise money to help local high school students.

As with so many charities and community groups, COVID-19 prevented the society from holding traditional fundraising events. That meant the society wasn’t able to fully fund the scholarships for last year.

“We didn’t have it (shredding) in 2021, but, we did have a tree chipping event in January 2022 after Christmas, and raised money for one of our scholarships. This event on Saturday will hopefully raise enough for our second scholarship,” said Sandy Dunkley, the mother of Ron and the founder of the society.

The goal is to raise enough money to be able to provide $1,000 scholarships to Langley Secondary and Brookswood Secondary.

The public can take such things as cheques, confidential documents, bank statements, old bills, old tax returns, and even CDs for shredding and disposal.

People can drive up and the items will be unloaded from the backs of their vehicles or people can park and watch the items being shredded.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Town & Field Church, 20719 48th Ave. Shredding is by donation.

Dunkley, a Langley City firefighter, died 60 days after he was hit by a train in Seattle in 2010.

Ron was in the U.S. city in November, 2010 to attend a Seahawks game when, on his way back to his hotel, he stepped between the cars of a stationary train and into the path of a moving locomotive.

He was taken to hospital with catastrophic injuries and died 60 days later, on Jan. 4, 2011.

During the two months he spent in hospital, his medical bills had climbed to US $2.7 million.

Blue Cross would only cover the first $1 million. But after struggling to find the funds, the family was informed that an anonymous benefactor paid the entire bill.

That inspired creation of the society.

The Ron Dunkley Memorial Society, a registered charitable foundation, was formed to raise funds for a number of causes — the B.C. Professional Firefighters Burn Fund, Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, Canadian Blood Services and University of Washington Medicine among them.

Want to safely dispose of personal, confidential and financially sensitive documents and spare the environment? Visit the Southampton Rotary Club’s second community shredding drive-through event April 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Article content

The event, which marks “Earth Week”, takes place in the parking lot behind Rotary Hall, 39 Grey St. South, Southampton on a “first-come, first-served” basis.

The Club will again partner with Wasteco to bring an onsite service – a mobile shredding truck – to Southampton. The shredded material is used in recycled paper products.

Along with raising awareness of recycling and care for the environment, the event highlights the risks of identity theft and importance of safe, secure disposal of sensitive documents.

The environment is one of Rotary International’s Areas of Focus and in an April 12 news release, the Southampton Club said the community shredding event adds to events like the annual clean=ups of roadsides, Perkins Park and the beach.

There is no charge, but a donation $10 per banker’s box or similar size is suggested. Cash is preferred or payment may be made by debit or credit card.

Co-Operators, Port Elgin is again the signature sponsor for the shredding event, and sponsorship support also comes from RBC Meeting Place, Susan J. Dollar Law, Don Amy – McIntee Real Estate and in-kind support from Quality Inn Southampton and RONA Southampton.

Any proceeds will benefit Rotary’s causes, including the maintenance of Rotary Perkins Park.
