2024 Free Residential Shredding Events

The Township of Medford is pleased to announce its schedule for the free residential shredding events for the calendar year of 2024

Saturday, April 20th, June 15th and September 14th, 2024.

8:00 am to 12:00 noon

Township DPW Yard/Dump/Resident Recycling Center, 2 Commonwealth Drive (behind Bob Meyer Park)

These events will be conducted regardless of weather and there will be no rain days or changes to the schedule.


The shredding unit will be available from 8:00 am until 12:00 noon at the Resident Recycling Center, located at 2 Commonwealth Drive. (Off of Gravelly Hollow Road behind Bob Meyer Park)

Residents may bring up to 5 boxes or bags of files to be shredded on site. An experienced operator will be present in a highly secure, mobile shredding unit where your confidential materials will be shredded as you watch, there is even a camera screen that allows you to watch your items be shredded in real time! Please bring paper onlyplastic bags, metal, binders and binder clips cannot be shredded. (Paper clips and staples are acceptable)

Shredding not only protects you and your family from identity theft and financial fraud but 100% of the paper is recycled and is applied to Medford’s recycling totals, for which we obtain grants from the State of NJ under the Clean Communities Program and Recycling Tonnage Grant Program. These grants funds are used to continue our recycling program through various avenues including, community clean ups, hazardous waste disposal, and specialized recycling events. This not only helps the Township but the Nation as a whole by preventing recyclable items from being sent to our already burdened landfills and keeps our community clean. 


The DPW Yard is open from 8:00 am till 1:00 pm to accept all other waste and recycling materials.
