Alpharetta Hosting Free Secure Document Shredding Event

Released August 25, 2022 07:44 AM

City of Alpharetta residents that need to safely discard bank statements, medical history papers, and other documents containing confidential information are invited to take advantage of a free document shredding event on Saturday, October 1, 2022. The location will be the Alpharetta Department of Public Works, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia from 8:30 am until Noon (or earlier if the truck is full). There is a five-box limit per household.

This shredding and recycling collection will offer residents and small businesses the opportunity to safely discard confidential documents using a mobile, on-site shredding truck. Residents can have comfort knowing that the shredded materials will be recycled into new paper without risk of their confidential information falling into the wrong hands. 

The Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission is requesting that participants enhance this act of “giving back” by bringing a canned food item per box brought for shredding.  All collected food items will be dispersed to neighbors through the North Fulton Community Charities Food Bank. Participants are asked to remain in their vehicle. We will unload for you.

This event is being held in conjunction with a Computer and Electronics Recycling Collection at this location from 8:30 am to Noon.

For more information about this event, please contact Terry Porter at or (678) 297-6213.
