Westminster, MD, Tuesday, April 23, 2024 - The Carroll County Bureau of Aging & Disabilities is sponsoring shredding events at the Senior & Community Centers. The events are free and open to older adults 60+ years of age and adults with disabilities 18+ years of age. No businesses, please.

The shredding services will be completed by The Shred Mill, a document destruction and recycling company based in Sykesville. The Shred Mill will shred the following items on-site at each event: paper documents, bound books, spiral and plastic bindings, X-rays, and CDs. There is no need to remove staples or paper clips. These will be drive-thru events.

In partnership with the Carroll County Health Department and the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, medication disposal will also be available at each of the shredding events. The event will collect medications only…No Sharps, No Needles.
