Montclair Shred-Fest!

Shred and Recycle Your Private Documents at Montclair’s Spring 2015 Shred-Fest! Montclair residents doing some spring cleaning can enjoy the peace of mind from seeing all their confidential documents shredded, while boosting recycling and saving money. Our recyclable paper is valuable, and throwing it out as garbage is like burning our own money. Now residents can watch their private documents destroyed in front of their eyes, while still recycling this valuable material. A paper-shredding truck will be provided free of charge by Montclair’s recycling vendor, Atlantic Coast Fibers; residents just drive in and will be helped to unload their personal files. Remember: only confidential paper documents, and Montclair residents.
