With the increased awareness of identity theft, it’s important to carefully dispose of personal records. Households can bring up to five boxes of paper records per household. All of the shredded material is recycled. Please make sure your records are paper only (no hard plastics, no plastic bags, electronic media or three-ring binders) and are not wet or moldy. Mobile shredding trucks will be provided by Balcones Resources, Cintas, and Iron Mountain.
