Free Paper Shredding & Book Recycling Event

September 12, 2019

The City of Albany Department of General Services sponsors two (2) FREE Paper Shredding events each year. Albany residents can bring documents to be shred and they will be shred on site. DGS also collects hard and soft cover books for recycling. Books are NOT shredded or redistributed.

Both events are held in front of the Washington Park Lake House. Please enter through the Madison Ave entrance. 

The next 2019 Paper Shredding and Book Recycling Event will be held on October 5, 2019,  1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Please try to transport papers to be shred in boxes, reusable totes or paper bags. They will be returned once your paper has been dumped.

Residents will have the opportunity to watch their paper being shred.
