East Donegal Township To Host Multi-Municipal Shredding Event – Saturday, September 19th

East Donegal, Mount Joy, and West Donegal Townships will be holding a shredding event on Saturday, September 19 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  East Donegal Township will be hosting the event at the East Donegal Township building located at 190 Rock Point Road, Marietta.

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 four banker boxes or 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.

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 local food banks. 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!
