PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – April 27, 2018 – The Calvert County Department of Public Works Solid Waste Division is hosting a free paper shredding event for local businesses Tuesday, May 8. The event will be held in the rear parking lot at the College of Southern Maryland, Prince Frederick Campus located at 115 J.W. Williams Road in Prince Frederick from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine. Attendants will be on site to assist. The shred event eliminates the hassle of small-scale shredding and the cost for a professional shredding service.

Businesses must present proof of Calvert County occupancy and are limited to five banker boxes of paper. All paper must be removed from plastic bags and cardboard boxes. Paper clips, staples and wire-bound items are acceptable. Binders, binder clips, hard binding books, rubber bands and plastic bags are not acceptable. Certificates of destruction may be requested. The shredded paper is remanufactured into new paper products.
