HARRISON, N.Y. – The Westchester County government is bringing a mobile shredder around the county in the coming months to help residents recycle paper and destroy their sensitive information, according to the county government’s website.
The mobile shredder will arrive in Harrison this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MTA lot on the corner of Harrison Avenue and Halstead Avenue. Residents may bring their papers to any of the scheduled shredding events, not just the ones in their own town.
Residents may bring up to four file-size boxes (10”x12”x15”) of paper per household. The county asks that those who use the shredder remove all large binder clips and covers from the papers.
Papers from “businesses, institutions or commercial institutions” will not be accepted, nor will junk mail and newspapers.
Residents will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. If the weather does not cooperate, the county may end the event early or cancel it altogether. The shredder may also reach its limit before the scheduled end of the event should the event draw a large number of people.
On the day of the shredding event, residents can call the county’s Recycling HelpLine at 914-813-5425 to find out about cancellation or an early closure.
