Orleans residents: it's time to shred

Town to offer free shredding services at the transfer station June 21

The Town of Orleans is offering residents an opportunity to do some serious spring cleaning. On Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., residents with a valid transfer station sticker are invited to bring up to five boxes of paperwork to the transfer station to be shredded.

Paper files, records, folders, documents, magazines, staples, clips and hangers will be accepted. Three-ring binders, hard cover books, tapes, CDs, media and hard drives will not be accepted, according to a notice from the town. The shredding will be done on-site by Waste Management Inc. Their methods meet or exceed National Association of Information Destruction standards, according to the town.

Materials to be shredded should be dropped off in cardboard boxes and are limited to five boxes per trip.

The Orleans Transfer Station is located at 56 Lots Hollow Road in Orleans. Costs and information about obtaining a transfer station sticker are available here.
