Paper Shredding Event Sept. 26 I am hosting a free paper shredding event on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. to noon at the New Hanover Recreation Center, 2373 Hoffmansville Road in Frederick. The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder from Wiggins Shredding, will provide the opportunity for households to shred up to four packing boxes of materials. Cardboard boxes and plastic bags will be returned; paper bags can be shredded along with the other material. Due to COVID-19, attendees are asked to follow these guidelines: • Event participants must stay in their vehicles. • All shredding materials must be placed in the trunk or truck bed area of the vehicle, not the backseat, prior to arrival. Event staff will unload materials while residents remain in their vehicles. The event will be held rain or shine.
