Free Community Shred Day
Saturday, August 18, 2018 - 9:00am to 1:00pm
DPW will offer FREE paper shredding for city residents. Residents can bring up to two garbage bags of documents to be shredded. The bin sale and free paper shredding will take place Saturday, Aug. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Poly High School, 1400 W. Cold Spring Lane Baltimore, Md. 21209.
This is an opportunity for Baltimore City residents to safely dispose of sensitive paper documents quickly, easily, and securely. Cancelled checks, medical records, credit card information, utility bills, old tax returns, and pay stubs are among the many items that should be destroyed by shredding. Bags that contain other trash will not be accepted.
Those interested can bring up to two 32-gallon bags of papers, and must bring a license or other proof of Baltimore City residency.
Recycle Bin Sale
The bright, canary yellow recycling bins will be on sale at deeply discounted rates. Baltimore residents can purchase the 25-gallon bins and lid for $10 (regularly $12) and the smaller 18-gallon bins are on sale for $4 (regularly $5).
As a reminder, residents do not need city-issued recycling bins to recycle. Paper bags, cardboard or plastic boxes and trash cans, labeled “recycling,” are all acceptable containers. Please do not use plastic bags for recycling.
