Record Preparation;
1) Only dry paper packed in cardboard boxes no larger than 24”x24”x36” with fitting lids or securely closed box flaps will be accepted. 
2) Do not bring plastics of any kind, electronic media, batteries, or three-ring binders. All shredded materials will be recycled.

Please assist us in making this event successful and safe. In the past, we have allowed vehicles to park and wait in line before 9 am. This year we are asking for citizens to avoid arriving before 9 am. Citizens will be turned away until the event begins. Please remain in your vehicle throughout the event.

It is important to carefully dispose of credit card statements, checking account records, prescription documents, medical insurance files, and other sensitive material. All shredded material will be recycled.
