Shredding, Collection Event In October

Just in time for the upcoming Holidays, the Madison Rotary Club will host another Community Shredding Day joined by Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore truck.  The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct.20, in Municipal parking lot #1, at the corner of Prospect Street and Kings Road by the Ambulance Squad.  

The event is open to the public.  It is not necessary to be a Madison resident.

Security Shredding, Inc. will provide secure destruction of sensitive documents, after which the shredded papers will be recycled into other paper products.  Stay and watch documents being destroyed on the truck-mounted shredder. The cost is $5 per box or grocery bag. Larger containers will be priced accordingly. As this service is also a fundraiser, all proceeds from the shredding event will be “recycled” by the Madison Rotary for future community projects.

Also on hand will be a truck from Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, which will gratefully accept area residents’ new or very gently used home building materials, lighting and plumbing fixtures, hardware items in original packaging, fine art and collectibles, and furniture and other home furnishings in excellent condition.  

Having the ReStore truck come to Madison is a convenience for would -be donors, as the ReStore facility is located in Randolph.  ReStore’s inventory is 100-percent donated by businesses and individuals and sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build affordable homes in Morris County and surrounding areas.  According to Jeannie Tsukamoto, former president of both Madison Rotary and Morris Habitat for Humanity, “donations to ReStore have built 25 homes in Morris County and have kept over 8,000 tons of reusable materials out of landfills since 2007.”
