On Saturday, November 6, 2021, the City of Murrieta is hosting a free shredding event for all Murrieta residents. The community is invited to Murrieta City Hall between 8 a.m. and noon for convenient, safe, and free disposal of their paperwork or other sensitive documents.
Bringing your personal documents to Murrieta’s free shredding event allows you to “shred it and forget it.” Shredding personal and sensitive documents decreases the chances of identity theft, allowing you to discard old documents securely. Documents are shred the day of drop off, so attendees can feel confident in the disposal process. Examples of documents residents might want to bring to the event include old tax returns, bank documents, expired policies, unnecessary receipts and bills, and more. All shredded paper is recycled, reducing waste.
In addition, the City is partnering on a household hazardous waste drop-off event on Saturday, October 30, 2021. This event is led by Riverside County Department of Waste Resources and is free to all residents of Riverside County and will take place in the City Hall parking lot from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. For information about the items accepted at this event, visit rcwaste.org/hhw.
“The City of Murrieta works hard to ensure residents have convenient and safe ways to dispose of materials from paint and chemicals to sensitive documents. These events are just two of the ways the City’s recycling and solid waste program helps Murrieta residents,” shared Louie Lacasella, Assistant to the City Manager, who oversees Murrieta’s solid waste and recycling program.
Both events will be located in the Murrieta City Hall parking lot at 1 Town Square, Murrieta, CA 92562. Please bring proof of Murrieta residency to participate in the shredding day. For information regarding these events, please contact Louie Lacasella at (951) 461-6008 or [email protected]
