Town of Saugus Announces Paper Shredding Event on Saturday, April 22, 2017 in Celebration of Earth Day

(Saugus, MA) April 6, 2017 – The Town of Saugus, in conjunction with North Shore Bank, will hold a Paper Shredding Event on Saturday, April 22, 2017 in celebration of Earth Day.

During this free event, Saugus residents will be able to properly dispose of sensitive documents, such as taxes, bank records, pay stubs, utility bills, and hospital bills in an eco-friendly manner. Files will be shredded on-site in a mobile paper shredder, and then recycled.

In Massachusetts, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars are spent each year burning paper and recyclables that could have been recycled. This year, the Town is honoring Earth Day by encouraging residents to shred and recycle those personal documents.  

The Paper Shredding Event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Department of Public Works at 515 Main Street.  

Residents are encouraged to call Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions.
