Residents can shred their own documents and place them in a brown paper bag in their curbside recycling bin. Some municipalities offer periodic shredding events for residents with larger quantities of confidential paper. Call your local municipality for availability. Businesses can call Cascades Recovery (527-8110) for certified document destruction. A listing of additional companies can be found under the "Paper-Shredded" section in the Yellow Pages.
Also accepted at all ecopark collections. Click here to view hours of operation. The ecopark will have locked bins to hold pre-sorted (no envelopes, magazines, newspaper clippings, Manila folders, etc.) confidential documents from Monroe County households--materials from businesses, home offices, etc. will be rejected. This service is not 'certified' document destruction. Material will periodically be taken off site for shredding.
