Residents Bring More Than 5 Tons Of Paperwork To Be Shredded

IMG_6355On Saturday, Oct. 17, the Orange Recycling Committee offered a FREE document shredding event for Orange residents in the parking lot of the High Plains Community Center from 9 a.m. to noon.

The Rotary Club of Orange provided a grant to pay for the service.

The Recycling Committee invited residents to, “Bring your important documents and papers for secure, on-site shredding. You can even watch as your papers go into the special shredding truck and get destroyed! Our committee members will be on hand to assist and keep things moving quickly.”

Residents were told to simply bring papers in bags, boxes or bins. Neatness NOT required! All types of paper except newspaper. No need to remove staples or elastic bands, but clips should be removed for reuse.

To the committee’s delight, Orange heeded the call and began lining up 30 minutes early and the line didn’t die down until the very end after 225 residents took advantage of the service.

The truck is designed to accept 10,000 pounds of shredded material — but in the end, the truck was filled with 11,000 pounds.

ProShred truck operator Jeff Nemeth said everything ran smoothly and  the Recycling Committee and Rotary Club members who worked the event were very helpful and kept things moving along.

“The rear of the truck looks pregnant,” he said — and it did, the side panels were bulging.

After 11:30 when the truck was approaching capacity some residents had to be kept down to a couple of boxes of documents instead of the carload they brought.

Recycling Chairman Mitch Goldblatt said next year they may have to get a bigger truck. “We’re grateful to the Rotary Club for making this possible. I was happy to see a few people giving them donations during the shredding.”
