If you’ve been wanting to clean out your personal files of old, outdated papers, Saturday is “Paper Shredding Day” in downtown New Bedford.

The City, along with the Regional Refuse Management District and Downtown New Bedford Inc. will have a “Doc Shredding Corporation” truck in the parking lot across the street from City Hall where residents can bring their papers to be shredded on site.

Paper clips and staples don’t have to be removed but the items must not be in binders or folders. There is a $5 per-box fee and no box should weigh more than 40 pounds.

Recycling Coordinator Marissa Perez-Dormitzer says the shredding company can handle much more than your household shredder.

There is a 5 box limit. Anything over that will be shredded off-site.

Doc Shredding will also destroy any old computer hard drives on-site for a fee of $5.
