Document shredding event in Greenville
By Scott Harvey
Greenville – The City of Greenville will host its annual document shredding event on Friday, April 16th.
Residents may bring up to three (3) banker sized boxes of paper and have the paper
destroyed for free. A banker box is approximately 15 " x 12 " x 10 " in size and weighs about 30 pounds when full of paper. Residents are asked to remove binders before having the documents shredded, but it is not necessary to remove small paper clips or staples.
The document shredding event will be held at the W. Walworth Harrison Public Library, #1 Lou Finney Lane, from 8:00 a.m. to noon, or until the truck is full. All documents will be shredded on-site. The shredded paper will then be recycled in order to maintain environmental responsibility.
Volunteers will be available to unload material from vehicles and the boxes will be returned to residents. Proof of Greenville residency is required by showing a utility bill, tax statement or driver's license. For more information, contact the City Secretary's Office at 903-457-3121.
