The A. Dennis Moore Recycling Center will host its annual shredding service from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Sept. 10. Free to Harpswell residents, shredding will be provided by Without A Trace Mobile Shredding, of Scarborough, which will have a truck parked behind the center.
Residents are encouraged to bring sensitive financial or medical papers, such as bank statements, for secure, confidential disposal. As in past years, the service will be a drive-thru event. Volunteers will help residents unload their vehicles into the shredding bins.
The bins will be loaded into the truck and the papers shredded on the spot. A video camera inside the truck will confirm the shredding. Shredded materials will be recycled off-site. Volunteers will recycle the bags or boxes that residents use to carry materials.
Items that can be shredded include paper, manila folders, hanging folders, staples, paper clips and binder clips. Materials that cannot be shredded include plastic page protectors and credit cards, dark brown folders, accordion folders, rubber bands, three-ring binders, photographs and slides.
