City Adds Document Shredder To Clean-Up Day

Havre de Grace's fall clean-up continues on Saturday.

Havre de Grace has added a paper shredder to Saturday's fall clean-up event at the community center.

City spokesman John Van Gilder told Patch Tuesday the city has contracted a large paper shredder to allow residents to safely rid themselves of documents.

Van Gilder said the shredding option is a crime prevention measure for residents.

The second of a pair of fall clean-up days will be held from 8 a.m. until noon on Sept. 29 at the Havre de Grace Community Center.

The site—located at 100 Lagaret Lane—will have multiple dumpsters on both days to assist residents in cleaning clutter from their homes.

Residents—who must show proof of residency, such as a driver's license—may drop off tires (off the rim), mattresses, electronics, clothing, furniture, grills, appliances, empty propane tanks and batteries, according to the city's department of public works.

Items such as cans of wet paint and hazardous materials will not be accepted.

Personnel will be on site to assist with the event.

Harford County will hold a hazardous waste disposal day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 10 at Scarboro Landfill. Call 410-638-3417 for more information.

I agree. Nice touch by the city. Only wish I lived in city limits so I could take advantage! -Sean
