Cumberland County Solid Waste Management has a commercial size shredder and will shred paper materials for citizens on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (no binders or paper clips; staples are OK). The cost for shredding is $.35 per pound.
If you have paper to be shredded, go to the Ann Street Landfill and follow the road to the right. At the scale house, go to the window and tell the weighmaster you have shredding. You will be instructed on where to go for the shredding. Once at the baling facility, the papers will be weighed, and you will be given a receipt with weight listed. Go back to the scale house and give the weighmaster your receipt. You will be charged based on the weight listed on the receipt.
Shredding is not available to businesses, including home-based businesses.
