GREENVILLE — Got any loads of paper you need disposed in a free, safe and secure manner?

The City of Greenville will host its annual document shredding event Thursday at the W. Walworth Harrison Public Library, No. 1 Lou Finney Lane, from 8 a.m. to noon, or until the shredding truck is full.

Greenville residents may bring up to three banker-sized boxes of paper and have the paper destroyed for free.  A banker box is approximately 15 x 12 x 10 inches in size and weighs about 30 pounds when full of paper. Residents are asked to remove binders before having documents shredded, but it is not necessary to remove small paper clips or staples.

All documents will be destroyed on site. The shredded paper will then be recycled in order to maintain environmental responsibility.

Volunteers will be available to unload materials from vehicles and the boxes will be returned to residents. Proof of Greenville residency is required by showing a utility bill, tax statement or driver’s license.

For more information contact the City Secretary’s Office at 903-457-3121.
