Community paper shredding events: why your options are about to change

shredderFor several years, Brunswick residents have been able to bring their confidential documents to the City Hall parking lot twice a year to have them shredded. That's about to change.

Unfortunately, the semi-annual Brunswick event was getting a bit pricey to run and has been discontinued. The good news is that Brunswick residents still have options.

The Medina County Board of Developmental Disabilities has kindly informed us that Brunswick residents are eligible to take documents to their Community Shred Day, which is also held twice a year. The next one is coming up in October. Please click here for more information, and here for a map of the location.

And there are also commercial options. Both Staples and OfficeMax will perform document shredding, albeit for a fee. And a big thank you to Patti Hetkey of the MCBDD for providing us with info about their shredding program.
