Madison Rotary hosted a Community Shredding Day and was  joined by Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore truck.  The event will took place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, October 21 at Municipal parking lot #1 near the Ambulance Squad.  The event is open to the public provided a great service to the community to safely get rid of sensitive documents and donate gently used furniture to Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Security Shredding, Inc. will provide secure destruction of sensitive documents, after which the shredded papers will be recycled into other paper products.  Stay and watch your documents being destroyed on the truck mounted shredder. Cost is $5 per box or grocery bag. Larger containers will be priced accordingly.  As this service is also a fund raiser, all proceeds from the shredding event will be “recycled” by the Madison Rotary for future community projects.
 
Also on hand will be a truck from Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore, which will gratefully accept area residents’ new or very gently used home building materials, lighting and plumbing fixtures, hardware items in original packaging, fine art and collectibles, and furniture and other home furnishings in excellent condition.  Having the ReStore truck come to Madison is a convenience for would -be donors,  as the ReStore facility is located in Randolph.  ReStore’s inventory is 100% donated by businesses and individuals and sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build affordable homes in Morris County and surrounding areas.  According to Jeannie Tsukamoto, President  of Morris Habitat for Humanity “donations to ReStore have built 22 homes in Morris County and have kept over  5,800 tons of reusable materials out of landfills since 2007.”
