Albany Department of General Services sponsors two (2) FREE Paper Shredding events each year. Albany residents can bring documents to be shred and they will be shred on site. DGS also collects hard and soft cover books for recycling. Books are NOT redistributed/reused.
Both events are held in front of the Washington Park Lake House.
Please enter through the Madison Ave entrance.
