Free Shredding Day in Clarkstown

Town Clerk’s Office will be open during event.

 

The Town of Clarkstown will offer Clarkstown residents a day of free shredding services on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p..m or until the shred truck is filled.  The program will be held in the parking lot of Town Hall at 10 Maple Avenue in New City.   

Residents can bring three small boxes or the equivalent of what would fit in two Town recycling bins to be shredded. Proof of Clarkstown residency is required. 

“This is a wonderful opportunity to offer residents an efficient and convenient way to get rid of all those piles of papers lying around,” said Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack.   

During the shredding program, Town Clerk Justin Sweet’s office will be open.  All services, including marriage licenses, hunting and fishing license sales, dog licensing, free notary services, and issuance of handicapped parking tags will be available. 

For more information, residents can call the Supervisor’s office at 639-2050 or email a.gromack@clarkstown.org.

I am amazed...you ask the residents to just bring 3 small boxes for recycling..wow 3 boxs max~~~YET you ALLOW so many residents to throw out unlimited trash week after week and those who run CLARKSCLOWN do not worry about lost revenue from al lthe NON STICKERED TRASH CANS..simple total lack of management. all the clarkstown clowns know how to do is spend spend spend..so sad..

I am amazed that you can read but not understand. The artical says "Residents can bring three small boxes or the equivalent of what would fit in two Town recycling bins to be shredded". It does not say for recycling but, SHREDDING. You can still recycle all you want in the proper bin's like normal and throw out all the trash you want. You may have a point about "NON -STICKERED".
Bob..re-read what the gromack said" This is a wonderful opportunity to offer residents an efficient and convenient way to get rid of all those piles of papers lying around,” said Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack." well all is only 3 small boxs?? this week there was a homeowner who ready left out on the sidewalk old mattresss along with 5 trash receptcles!! and the garbage guys took it ALL!!!!! so now we dont have to just throw the big stuff out only once a month!! we can do it every trash collection day.. my main point is....the leadership is not going after LOST revenue!!!!!!!!!!!simple!!but they know how to raise the taxes!!!! bob go check out the parking lot on maple ave...porche,mercedes all on the taxpayers dollars..but to collect revenue where there is.they are out to lunch....
and bob most shedding is recycled....

Nothing in life is free. What is the cost for this service? Who is benefiting by this event? Where does our paper go? Why would we bring our private personal papers to our town instead of shredding it ourselves? A brief look into this I am told that the shredding company is profiting from recycling our paper. True or not I have not looked in to it. If they are making a windfall of money why is the town not taking a portion of the profits. Obviously our town is in need of additional revenue. So, who owns the company and what deal did they make. Our recycling bins are there to, well...To Recycle so if our town is not profiting from that and the recycling is not being done end the program. We should never be so naive as to believe all that is told to us as truth.

I can see folks applying for a marriage license while they shred all their papers that they haven't yet shredded with a home shredder that costs like 40 bucks.
