The City of Sunnyvale offers personal document shredding to residents from Sunnyvale, Mountain View, and Palo Alto. Residents will be required to provide proof of residency using a picture I.D. with an address for one of the three cities, or picture I.D. with a current utility bill. Commercial/business customers will not be admitted to the events.

Events will be held at the SMaRT Station® from 8 a.m. to noon, see the 2011 Recycling Events Calendar for upcoming Shredding Events.

Document shredding events provide residents a great opportunity to:

Shred and recycle paper that's been taking up space;

Reduce clutter and simplify life; and

Reduce possible identity theft.

Aside from the obvious personal benefits of shredding private documents, recycling shredded paper reduces:

Solid waste materials to the landfill;

Deforestation, preserving natural resources; and

Air and water pollution generated by processing virgin materials.

Shredding Event Procedures

Volunteers will be available to direct traffic and provide assistance in off-loading boxes for residents.

To accommodate expected high volume participation, there will be a limit of 5 banker-sized boxes (approx. 18" x 12" x 10") or paper bags per household.

Paperclips, staples, spiral notebooks, and rubberbands are acceptable. However, refrain from disposing of heavy binders or binder clips to prevent damage to shredding equipment.

Events are well-attended. While our volunteers work diligently to keep traffic flowing, we appreciate your patience when experiencing delays.

Restrict materials for shredding to personal documents only. Other recyclable paper products may be disposed in residential recycling carts as part of regular garbage and recycling curbside collection services, or taken to the SMaRT Station Recycling Center. All paper will be shredded on site by Cintas and will be recycled into useful paper products.
