Pierce County sponsored shred events will be returning this August. Thank you for your patience!
We are excited to bring back our popular shred events for August, September, and October 2021. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please remember to limit your documents to no more than three bags full. For tips on what documents are high priority to shred, please review our tips below. We look forward to seeing you!
Please only shred portions of a document containing sensitive information. For example, an entire magazine does not need to be shredded if you are only worried about the address label. Remember that information like names, addresses, and birthdays are usually available online. The Attorney General's office does not consider these to be high priority for shredding. Please be mindful of the personal information you share online.
If you already have shredded paper: If you have bags of paper that you have already shredded, please put it in your garbage. Shredded paper is no longer accepted in our recycling program. Small, confetti-like pieces of paper have no retrievable fibers for recycling. This material is also not accepted in curbside yard waste. If you have a home worm composting system, it can be used.
Please check with your local office supply stores and mail stores to see if they offer shredding services. Additionally, residents can reach out to shred companies like LeMay Mobile Shredding, Iron Mountain, Shred-It, and more to get documents shredded.
