Paper Shredding Services/Shredded Paper
The ecopark accepts presorted documents from Monroe County households and holds them in locked bins for periodic off site shredding. This service is not "certified" document destruction.
- Materials should be sorted before coming to facility.
- No envelopes, magazines, newspaper clippings, manila folders, etc.
- Materials from businesses, home offices, etc. will be rejected
Some municipalities offer periodic shredding events for residents with larger quantities of confidential paper. Call your local municipality for availability. Businesses can contact Cascades Recovery for certified document destruction or classified scanning and shredding.
Paper shredded at home can be recycled curbside (in brown paper bags only) or dropped off at the ecopark.
An innovative partnership between Monroe County and Waste Management to provide a "one stop drop off" for residential recycling.
For use by Monroe County residents only!
Please note that the recycling stations at the ecopark are self-serve (with the exception of Household Hazardous Waste). Residents should be prepared to unload their own items.

Recycling is an international commodities market, where the supply and demand for recycled feedstock can fluctuate due to global dynamics. During certain market conditions, material from recyclers - like the ecopark - may be rejected and landfilled because of the presence of contaminants (non-recyclable materials). Please help us ensure that materials at the ecopark are recycled by only including acceptable items.
