The Shred It and Forget It event will take place from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, May 1, at the Environmental Services Building, 135 Ecology Drive. St. Peters residents with valid Resident Privilege Cards can have their documents shredded and recycled by mobile shredders at no cost.


At that same event, the City of St. Peters will celebrate Arbor Day by handing out free tree seedlings to St. Peters residents. A certified arborist will also be present to answer any questions.


St. Peters residents who bring a valid Resident Privilege Card can take advantage of the tree giveaway starting at 9 a.m. Redbud and Dogwood trees, along with planting instructions, will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis.


Mobile shredders will be on site to securely destroy and recycle unneeded documents. There is a limit of five banker-size boxes per vehicle. All shredded material will be recycled, including the cardboard boxes.


Do not bring computer discs or hanging file rods. Documents can contain staples or paper clips.
