Essex County Paper Shredding & Used Tire Recycling Day
9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Essex County Public Works Department, 99 W. Bradford Ave., Cedar Grove
Paper shredded at the event will be recycled. There is no limit on how much paper residents may bring to the Paper Shredding Day. However, plastic sheets and covers, and metal binders must be removed from paper to be shredded. Paper clips and staples do not have to be removed. Photo negatives and film are not accepted.
Rubber tires with or without metal rims will be accepted. Rims will not be returned to residents; they will be recycled. The collected tires will be delivered to a State-licensed transfer waste facility, which will recycle the tires into new uses.
The Essex County Paper Shredding Day and the Used Tire Recycling Day are for Essex County residents only. Residents are not charged when they bring materials, but they must provide proof of residency at the site. Commercial businesses may not drop off materials.
