Shred Your Documents Day

Shred Your Documents Day


The immensely successful Shred Your Documents Day returns on
Saturday, September 8 from 9 to noon at the Brecksville Municipal Parking Lot. It is the last Shredding Day until next May. Here’s your chance to securely shred all those confidential documents that should not go in the trash. Plus, it’s a great way to recycle paper.
Brecksville businesses are also welcome to bring their material to be shredded.
The City is asking everyone who attends to bring a voluntary contribution of canned goods for “Brecksville Pantry,” which supplies food monthly to low income families. The Pantry is always in need of peanut butter and jelly, spaghetti and sauce, canned vegetables and canned fruit. The only kinds of beans needed are baked beans or pork and beans. Also cereal, paper products, bar soap and toothpaste are needed. Gift cards from Heinen’s and Marc’s to purchase fresh meat and frozen orange juice are greatly appreciated.
The Pantry has a strict policy that out of respect for our recipients we will not distribute outdated food. Please check the expiration date on each item. It is most unfortunate that we have to dispose of a significant amount of outdated goods.
