Have you been looking for an easy way to eliminate the paper clutter that might be around your home from old documents, letters and other personal papers? The city invites you to take part in the third paper shred event of the year on Tuesday, August 27th.

Lexington’s Division of Waste Management, in joint collaboration with Cintas, is offering Fayette County residents the opportunity to shred unwanted paper in a safe, secure, and easy way and best of all, it’s free. This event is for Fayette County residents only – please, no businesses. All the paper shredded will be recycled by Cintas into low-grade paper products, such as tissue paper.

The event will take place at the landfill pad at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Signs will be posted directing participants to enter the site through Jimmie Campbell drive off Old Frankfort Pike.

Residents are asked not to arrive earlier than 11:30 a.m. as we will not be able to accommodate those who arrive earlier than the official start time.

Paper clips and staples are ok, but please remove large metal clips and binders. Material can include white paper, color paper, folders, magazines, envelopes and other paper products. There is a limit of five boxes or bags per person.

Because of the large volume of paper this event attracts and delays in processing it, we will offer participants the choice of waiting to have their papers shredded on-site or to have their materials secured on-site then transported and shredded off-site.

The remaining shred date in 2013 is Saturday, November 9.

Cardboard boxes will also be collected and recycled by the Lexington Recycling Center.
