Need some confidential documents shredded? Drive through the parking lot April 30, when the city of Strongsville and library team up for the fourth annual Shred Day.
Last year, nearly 400 cars drove through and Gateway Recycling took away nine tons of shredded paper.
Volunteers will be on hand to assist with unloading the papers for shredding. Items are dumped into large recycle containers and once full, are dumped into the on-site secure shredding machine.
The event runs 9 a.m. to noon in the Strongsville Branch Library parking lot, 18700 Westwood Drive.
Acceptable items: (small paper clips and staples can be still attached) accounting ledger paper, adding machine tape, advertisements, booklets/brochures, copy machine paper, colored paper - 20 pound, computer paper, envelopes, faxes, manila file folders, greeting cards, laser printer paper, legal pad paper, Post-it notes, NCR paper, receipts and all types of white paper.
Items NOT accepted: newspapers, phone books, magazines, binders, books, pendaflex folders, food and candy wrappers, waxed paper, napkins and styrofoam containers.
There is no limit on the number of boxes or bags that you bring.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of Strongsville Branch Library and the city of Strongsville.
