Typical documents to shred include medical forms, bank statements, personal files and retired tax forms. Staples and paper clips are acceptable, but binders should be removed. Residents will be limited to six file-size boxes or paper shopping bags per vehicle. All paper is shredded on-site by Accurate Document Destruction, a division of Groot Industries, and the electronics will be recycled by Supply-Chain Services.
