Document Shredding Events

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

In addition to the scheduled October shred event in Hamilton, the Madison County Department of Solid Waste has added another shred event in September at the Buyea Road Residential Station. The Dept. of Solid Waste invites residents to attend either event, making sure to follow necessary safety precautions (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, September 25, 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 

Shred Event Flyer

  • Residents can bring a maximum of four filing boxes per vehicle of personal and confidential documents to be shredded. Due to an anticipated high volume, the 4 box limit per vehicle will be enforced in order to ensure that all residents have a chance to shred their personal documents.  
  • 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. Junk mail, magazines, phone books or other envelopes with only the home address should go directly into the paper recycling bin. 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: July 17 and October 2. Business waste will not be accepted.
