Why We Have A Shred Event
Shredded material is recyclable, but not accepted in your curbside single-stream recycling cart. (However, shredded material may be included in your curbside composting cart. Add it in a paper or certified compostable bag if desired; no plastic bags.)
Who Can Participate
Longmont residents can conveniently recycle sensitive documents and protect themselves from identity theft.
- Note: Please be sure to bring a current City of Longmont Utility Bill and identification to show that you are a City resident paying for trash/recycling services.
- This event is for Longmont residents only; sorry, no businesses allowed, and no walk-up for a fee allowed.
