When will there be a free paper shredding event scheduled?

Jim Ware


Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties don’t have any paper shredding events scheduled as of July 3, 2012, officials said.

“We have been looking into the programs available and may add such a service to the free dump week that is held every spring and fall,” said Kimberley Thompson, Brunswick County solid waste/recycling coordinator.

John Hubbard, director of New Hanover County’s Environmental Management department, said although the county doesn’t sponsor shredding events, it does accept shredded paper for destruction.

Melinda Knoerzer, administrative assistant for Pender County Utilities, said the county hasn’t had a call to request shredding services.

“With the affordability of personal and small office shredders, we have not been asked to provide such a service for our citizens. We do provide co-mingled recycling at all 12 of our convenience sites to include office paper, but it is not shredded.,” Knoerzer said.
