On Saturday, August 11th from 9a.m. to 1p.m., there will be a free mobile document-shredding service on Kean’s campus for all Union County residents to help destroy valuable personal documents that can lead to identify theft if not disposed of properly. Not only that, but paper shredding is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to get rid of extra clutter that may be stashed away inside homes.
Shredded paper is recycled and used again rather than piling up in garbage bins and landfills, where it just sits and builds up. Shredded paper can be composted, which is a way for the paper to be broken down naturally. The recycling helps save more trees from being cut down to make more paper. These benefits go along with Union County’s other “Go Green Initiatives.”
To make sure everyone is able to use the service, there is a limit of four, 10-pound bags or boxes per person. To read more information about the mobile paper shredding service that will be at Kean on August 11th, click here.
