Madison County Department of Solid Waste to Host Spring Document Shredding Event
Canastota, NY –The Madison County Department of Solid Waste is partnering with Proshred to provide a free residential document shredding event at the Buyea Road Residential Station this Spring. Due to limitations in the truck’s capacity, the Dept. of Solid Waste requires residents to register prior to attending the event. Madison County residents can register online at www.MadisonCountyRecycles.ny.gov. Spaces are limited and appointments will be on a first-come, first-served basis:
- Saturday, May 14, 2022 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Buyea Road Residential Station
6666 Buyea Road
Residents can bring a maximum of four filing boxes of personal and confidential documents to be shredded. Material should be loose in boxes or paper bags and easily accessible in the back of the vehicle. Residents must stay in their vehicle at all times. Empty boxes will be returned to the vehicle; please do not put items in plastic bags.
Medical documents, bank information, tax records, and other paperwork containing account numbers or private details are ideal for drop off. Do not bring magazines, junk mail, phone books or photographs. Business waste will not be accepted.
“Many of our residents use our shred events as a safe and secure way to get rid of their confidential documents. We are excited to be hosting another event this Spring,” says Madison County Recycling Coordinator Kristin Welch. “The material collected gets shredded onsite and will be recycled into other paper products. Residents will be able to protect their personal information and, at the same time, help us rethink waste here in Madison County.”
In addition to the shred events, the Dept. of Solid Waste is working with LOJO Technology to host Saturday drop-offs for electronic waste. Residents looking to recycle electronics such as computers and TVs can take their materials to LOJO Technology (634 Birchwood Drive, Oneida) year-round Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 3 PM or on the following 2022 Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM: April 23, July 16 and October 1. Business waste will not be accepted. Madison County residents only.
