Mobile Shredder Coming To Mt Vernon

Plus full most updated list of where the Mobile Shredder will be in a city near you

The Mobile Shredder is sponsored by the Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities is coming to a city near you starting with the City of Mount Vernon, Saturday, April 15, 2017, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.


Shredding personal documents serves a double purpose– to recycle paper as well as protect sensitive information against identity theft — the fastest-growing crime in the nation. Westchester residents may bring confidential personal papers for shredding to any one of the following events.

Residents can bring up to 4 file-size (10”x12”x15”) boxes of confidential papers per household to the City of Mount Vernon, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for shredding. Please remove all large binder clips and covers. Papers from businesses, institutions or commercial enterprises are not acceptable and will be rejected, as will any junk mail or newspapers.

First come, first served:
Service at the events works on a first-come-first-served basis, as the Mobile Shredder unit can reach its maximum capacity before closing time. In extreme weather, events may be canceled or terminated early.

Please call the county’s Recycling Helpline at (914) 813-5425 to check on a cancellation or early closure.

Important information

It is important to be aware of what you place the paper to be shredded–no matches, lighters or anything combustible. Staff at the events will be checking the material prior to being shredded.

Kinds of documents to shred

Remember, it’s best to shred documents you’re no longer using, that contain personal identifying information such as name, address, phone number, credit card number or social security number. Such documents should be shredded before they are thrown out for recycling. Some examples are:

  • expired credit card statements and receipts
  • old tax returns or any other personal documents containing your name, address or other identifying information.
  • pre-approved credit card applications
  • licenses

As this service is gaining in popularity, residents should be prepared to wait as lines are sometimes long. However, the wait doesn’t have to be that long. Come prepared. This means you’ve removed all metal clips, fasteners, binders, folders and hardcovers and placed the papers loosely in a box. Hardcovers – cardboard or plastic covers on items such as ledger books, marble composition books, and hardcover books – cannot be shredded and will be turned away. Residents must rip pages out from hardcover books for shredding and throw the covers in their regular household trash. Up to four boxes of papers are allowed for shredding.

For more information about identity theft, call the Dept. of Consumer Protection (914) 995-2155. For questions about recycling, call (914) 813-5425, the Recycling Helpline.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
