Paper Shredding

There are two (2) ways Hamilton County residents can properly dispose of "information sensitive" documents.

  1. Directing cars to truckResidential Paper Shredding Events
    (for large amounts of paper)

    • Forest Park Community Shredding Event

      Maximum per Vehicle - 3-5 Boxes/Bags of Paper

      September 25, 2021   10 am - 1 pm
      West Kemper Park (1280 West Kemper Rd)

      This is an annual event.  It is sponsored by the Forest Park Environmental Program and the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Phi Psi Omega Chapter, Twenty Cultured Pearls Foundation.

      Important things to remember

      All paper/documents will be shredded "off-site." This means paper will be collected, placed in "locked" containers, and then transported to the company's facility where it will then be shredded.

              *  NO three-ringed binders or binder clips or large metal objects
              *  NO wet paper, plastics or pressurized containes
