Rain or shine, a county-wide paper shredding, electronics and tire recycling event will take place Saturday at Campgaw Mountain as the Bergen County Utilities Authority will attempt to make Bergen a bit more environmentally conscious.
Campgaw will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accept used electronics and tires, and shred old documents. The documents could include old tax forms, banking statements or bills. Keep in mind that newspapers, magazines, and books will not be accepted.
Shredding will be limited to four bags per resident and each bag cannot exceed 10 pounds.
E-waste, which as of January 1 of this year cannot be disposed of in the regular trash and recycling collections, includes old computers, cell phones, printers and other electronics.
Up to four tires, with or without rims, will be accepted.
This event will only collect personal items; no corporate or business waste will be accepted.
Proof of Bergen County residency is required.
