Shred paper for free April 20 at the Dauphin County Recycling Center

Posted

A free paper shredding day will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, April 20 — the 48th Earth Day — at the Dauphin County Recycling Center. 

Paper shredding usually costs $5 per box at the DCRC.

Paper dropped off for shredding should be boxed and any staples or fasteners larger than a half inch must be removed.

According to Dauphin County, more than 17,000 residents used the center last year — a 48 percent increase from 2014 — and recycled 1.9 million pounds of paper, including newspaper, cardboard, office paper and books.

County residents also can recycle electronics, such as telephones, televisions, DVD players, printers, answer machines and more, for free at the DCRC. The facility accepts unwanted appliances that function by electric or gas current for a minimal fee, packaging and food service containers, polystyrene foam No. 6 and compact fluorescent bulbs.

Located at 1625 S. Cameron St., inside the Susquehanna Resource Management Complex, the DCRC is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

For more information, call the center at 717-982-6772 or visit the county’s website at www.DauphinCounty.org.
