Gather your sensitive documents that need shredding!

When and Where

Cedarburg Friends of the Library is teaming up with Port Washington State Bank to host a community-wide shredding event on Saturday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Cedarburg High School’s north parking lot located at W68 N611 Evergreen Blvd.

What to Bring

A shredding truck will be collecting and professionally shredding (on site) your sensitive documents for a suggested donation of $1/pound. Please have a guesstimate of how many pounds you have to shred prior to arriving. Your papers will be finely shredded and then the paper recycled. And don’t fret, the shredders are strong enough to shred paper clips, staples, hanging folders, file folders, magazines, and hardbound books. However, the following cannot be shredded: metal (aside from paper clips and staples), binder clips, 3-ring binders, plastic, DVD’s, CD’s, cell phones, and batteries. 


Note that due to the high demand for shredding and the limited space in the shredding truck, each vehicle is allowed 2 boxes or 2 grocery bags of papers. Moreover, when the truck is full, unfortunately the event will be concluded, so please plan accordingly.

What Proceeds Benefit 

All funds raised will go toward the Cedarburg Library’s Summer Reading Program which includes story time, activities, prizes for book readers, and more.
