It feels like stories about identity theft are constantly in the news, which is probably the reason that shredder events have become so popular.  And one of those shredder events is happening tomorrow in Hamilton, NJ.

According to the Hamilton Township website, residents will be able to "shred paper materials and file folders, up to a 100 lb. limit."

Hamilton Mayor, Kelly Yaede, says, "We encourage residents to take advantage of this popular service to dispose of their paper materials in an environmentally friendly way, while helping to protect themselves against identity theft."

The event is happening between 8am-noon (or until the shredding truck is full) at the Hamilton Township Police Division Headquarters parking lot on Whitehorse-Mercerville Road.

There are a few important restrictions that people need to know:

  • The event is free and only available to residents of Hamilton Township.  Proof of residency will be required.  (Residents should bring their driver's license, tax bill, or a utility bill).
  • "CD’s, VHS tapes, DVD’s, plastic cases, computer hardware, metal, trash items, food products, x-rays, cardboard or similar items" will not be accepted.
