Over 1,000 boxes of confidential paper materials were processed during
the Riverview Land Preserve’s Community Shred Day event.
Nearly 300 downriver residents took part in Riverview Land Preserve’s recent Community Shred Day at our Grange Road facility.
The free drive-through event was a perfect opportunity to shred confidential paper materials such as receipts, bank statements, medical records and tax documents. There was a three-box limit per residential household. It is estimated that over 1,000 boxes were processed during the event.
All documents were securely shredded on-site. The shredded paper was not disposed of at the landfill but was recycled through one of RLP’s recycling vendors.
A Ton of Recycled Paper
Each ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water and 4,000 kilowatts of energy — enough to power the average home for six months.
Residents from Riverview, Southgate, Brownstown Township, Grosse Ile Township, Trenton, Wyandotte, Allen Park, Flat Rock, Lincoln Park, Rockwood, Taylor and Woodhaven took part in the event.
