The City of Albany Department of General Services sponsors two (2) FREE Paper Shredding events each year. Albany residents can bring documents to be shredded and they will be shredded on site. DGS also collects hard and soft cover books for recycling. Books are NOT shredded or redistributed.
Both events are held in front of the Washington Park Lake House.
Please enter through the Madison Ave entrance.
There are no more shredding events scheduled for 2017.
Please check back in the future for the 2018 schedule.
Please try to transport papers to be shredded in boxes, reusable totes or paper bags. They will be returned once your paper has been dumped.
Residents will have the opportunity to watch their paper being shredded.
