Mobile Paper Shredding


Privacy experts often recommend that individuals shred files, tax documents, credit cards and bank statements, and other items which could be used to commit identity theft.  In order to provide Bergen County residents the opportunity to participate in a document shredder program, the BCUA has implemented the Mobile Paper Shredding Program.  The Mobile Paper Shredding Program consists of regional and municipal shredding days.
