Shred-It Day - This Saturday!

Shred-It Day is an opportunity for Maplewood residents to shred any personal paper items such as legal documents, private records and files, books, etc. Shred-It Days are held at the Maplewood Recycling Center, located at 359 Boyden Ave.

October 19, 2019 from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, or until the truck fills up, whichever occurs first.


Does anyone know if it is safe to walk in with your documents or if you need a motor vehicle to participate?


Can South Orange residents use?

 I just checked the town website and it says "open to Maplewood residents only" and says proof of residency will be required.

 very cool. thank you both for checking.


That being said, I’ve never experienced any residency check at any of these events. 

How are the lines this time? The last couple of times it was a very long wait, so when one of the businesses in Maplewood Village did this a few weeks ago, I took my shred box over there.


I went to the SO DPW around 9:15. No residency check, and I was heading home in less than 2 minutes. 


For those who lamented the understandable cancellation of Maplewood's "Shred-It" day in April, here's another chance, along with tires.

(PS - If anyone decides to go, I have just one box I would love to send along with someone who is making the trip anyway.)


I had also posted this on Facebook and a friend saw it there and is going to take my box - hurray!


Just got back from this.  No line when we were there.  If you have a decent pile of possibly sensitive docs you want to be rid of, get over there.
