2022 Fall Document Shredding Event

The Madison County Department of Solid Waste will host their next document shredding event in Hamilton this Fall:

Saturday, October 15, 2022  
9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Parry's Parking Lot
100 Utica St, Hamilton NY

Please review the following information before attending the shred event:

  • Due to limitations in the shred event's truck capacity and to ensure those attending have an opportunity to drop off their documents for shredding, each household can bring a maximum of four filing boxes per vehicle. This event is for Madison County residents only; business waste will not be accepted. Residents do not need to register for this event.
  • Material should be loose in boxes or paper bags and easily accessible in the back of the vehicle. Empty boxes will be returned to the vehicle; please do NOT put items in plastic bags. 
  • Accepted documents for shredding: Medical documents, bank information, tax records, and other paperwork containing account numbers or private details are ideal for drop off. Please do not bring junk mail, magazines, phone books or other envelopes. These items can go into your normal paper recycling bin.
