A shredding event will be happening on Saturday, February 23rd for Mercer County residents. Hosted by the Mercer County Improvement Authority, it will be between 9am - 2pm in parking lot 4, 651 South Broad Street, across from the County Administration Building in Trenton. If that sounds confusing, don't worry, it's not far from the Cure Insurance Arena, and there will be signs to follow.

It feels so good to purge. I have a small shredder at home, but, my documents pile up on top of it, because I don't have time (or I'm too lazy) to sit there and shred them, It goes slow, and only take like 2 sheets at a time, so I love this event.  It's rain or shine. You don't even have to get out of your car. There are attendants by each shredding truck waiting for you to pull up, and will even take stuff out of your trunk. Cool side note: if you're interested, you can even watch your stuff be shredded on the screen on the side of the truck.

You don't have to register, but, make sure you have id with you, like your driver's license, to prove you're a Mercer County resident. No commercial businesses, please. This is for residents only. According to The Patch, you can shred up to 8 boxes or bags of paper. No household chemicals.  For more info, you can call (609) 278-8086 or go to mcianj.org.

If you see me, make sure you beep and wave.
