Each GMAR member may bring up to 10 boxes or bags to be shredded. Your cardboard boxes and plastic bags are emptied as you arrive and returned to you. Shredding guidelines are shown below. To sign up, click here or email Michelle Kohn with the time slot that you would like to arrive and the number of boxes/bags that you will have.
We will be accepting 175 boxes per hour, so please arrive during the time you choose. It will be important to let us know a day or two ahead if you need to cancel.
Keep the following guidelines in mind when sorting your items for Shredfest, as recycling centers WILL NOT accept the following items:
* processed photographs
* dark colored file folders
* carbon sheets
* high bright colored paper (flourescents)
* magazines, newspapers, books
* plastic (including 3 ring binders and bags)
* boxboard (like Fed-Ex envelopes)
Your cardboard boxes and plastic bags are emptied as you arrive and returned to you. If any of the restricted items are found in your recycling, you will not be allowed to continue. We would appreciate your reviewing your items before bringing them.
