Twice a year the City sponsors a free community shred day for Lake Oswego residents. Typically held in the spring after tax day and in the fall, community shred day provides secure, on site document destruction. In addition, all shredded material is recycled at the end of the day, making shred day both secure and environmentally sustainable! Service is on a first come, first served basis and limited to the truck capacity. The spring 2013 shred day was held on April 27.
During other times of the year, secure document shredding services are available at UPS stores, which charge a per pound fee, and from other area vendors. To find current secure document shredding vendors, rates, and locations, visit Metro's Find a Recycler website or call the Metro Recycling information at 503-234-3000.
