West Donegal Township, Mount Joy Township, & East Donegal Township Will Host Shredding Event – September 22nd

West Donegal, Mount Joy, and East Donegal Townships will be hosting a shredding event on Saturday, September 22 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the West Donegal Township building located at One Municipal Drive, Elizabethtown.

This event will be free of charge to all residents/businesses that reside or are located within these three townships. Residency identification will be required. We will be limiting the amount of shredding to a maximum of three banker boxes or large 32-gallon bags of paper per property to be shredded. Shredders handle staples, paper clips and folders as well as any color paper. Boxes or bags containing any materials that cannot be shredded will not be accepted.

Shredding services and equipment will be provided by Tri-State Shredding, who is AAA NAID certified. You can watch while your paper is shredded by bonded personnel and equipment. All shredded paper is then taken for proper and green disposal and the Township is provided with a Certificate of Destruction.

There is no charge to dispose of the shredded paper at this event. However, as it our wish to help others within our community, we are asking those participating in this event for donations of canned goods and boxed items. Please be generous as these donations will be given to the Conoy Brethren in Christ Church’s Food Bank. Last year we donated more than 20 boxes of donated food and non-perishable items and almost $200 in cash donations. Their greatest needs include: canned meats, juice, canned/boxed pasta, jams/jellies, cereals, pancake mixes and syrup, and paper products. Baby food and formula will also be accepted. Please no perishable items. Donations should be non-expired, non-breakable, and all items should be in unopened containers. Glass, frozen food, fresh produce/meats or home-made food will not be accepted. Your help is truly appreciated by those in need in our community!
