Menlo Park residents can take advantage of free shredding of confidential files on July 25

by Contributed Content on July 21, 2020

The City of Menlo Park is hosting a free shredding of confidential files event for Menlo Park residents on Saturday, July 25, from 9:00 am to noon. It will take place at the City Corporation Yard, 333 Burgess Drive.

Residents need to bring proof of residency such as a utility bill or driver’s license with Menlo Park address and businesses will need to provide a Menlo Park business license or business card.

Confidential document destruction is limited to three standard bankers boxes (10″ x 12″ x 15″) per vehicle. Materials will be shredded on-site so participants can watch their documents being destroyed. Documents with paper clips, staples and binder clips are acceptable.

This is a shredding event only. The electronic waste recycling portion has been canceled.

To practice social distancing, please follow these guidelines:
-Please label “Shred only” on any shredding materials and leave them in the trunk.
-It is recommended to remove all other personal items from the trunk to avoid any accidents.
-Residents will drive up to the vendors, remain in their vehicles with their face masks on, and the vendors will pick up the shredding materials from the trunks.
-Shred event ends at Noon or when the truck is full, whichever comes first.

This free event is sponsored by the City of Menlo Park and ReThink Waste.

They’re usually held about once a month. I try to post them on InMenlo. Linda
