Document Shredding Events

Madison County Department of Solid Waste to Host Two Document Shredding Events in 2021

The Madison County Department of Solid Waste is partnering with Proshred to provide two free residential document shredding events this year. The first event will be held in the Spring at the Buyea Road Residential Station and the second event will be held in the Fall in Hamilton. The Dept. of Solid Waste invites residents to attend either event, making sure to follow necessary safety precautions (i.e., wearing a face covering, staying in your vehicle at all times, and putting the materials to be shredded in a location where the event staff can easily access them): 

Saturday, May 15, 2021 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Buyea Road Residential Station
6666 Buyea Road, Canastota NY

Saturday, October 16, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM 
Parry’s parking lot in Hamilton
100 Utica Street, Hamilton NY

Residents can bring a maximum of four filing boxes of personal and confidential documents to be shredded. 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

Medical documents, bank information, tax records, and other paperwork containing account numbers or private details are ideal for drop off. Do not bring magazines, junk mail, phone books or photographs. Business waste will not be accepted. 

In addition to the shred events, the Dept. of Solid Waste is working with LOJO Technology to host Saturday drop-offs for electronic waste. Residents looking to recycle electronics such as computers and TVs can take their materials to LOJO Technology (634 Birchwood Drive, Oneida) year-round Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 3 PM or on the following 2021 Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM: April 24, July 17 and October 2. Business waste will not be accepted.
