Hudson Valley Credit Union: Community Paper Shred Event on Saturday, August 27th from 9am-12pm

Release Date: July 28, 2022

Hudson Valley Credit Union will soon be opening their newest branch at Cortlandt Crossing on East Main Street and to start the celebration, they’ll be offering residents free paper shredding services at Town Hall on Saturday, August 27th from 9 am to 12 pm (or until the truck fills up). Legal Shred will have a truck onsite to shred your confidential items on the spot. These events tend to be very busy, so please consider a few tips:

  • Prepare for a line, so wear comfortable clothing/shoes and bring sunscreen.
  • Only confidential documents should be shredded. Below is a list of acceptable and unacceptable items.
  • To ensure everyone has an opportunity to shred items, each person can recycle materials that fits in up to three boxes that are no larger than 18” x 12” x 10” (similar to a standard ream of copy paper). If you have more than that, you can recycle three boxes and then return to the line.
  • Please ensure you can move your materials along the line. Due to insurance restrictions, our staff cannot move your items. Legal Shred’s staff will lift your items into their recycling bins for shredding.
  • Items are accepted first come, first served until 12 pm or the truck is filled.
