Free Fall Event: Shred It and Forget It

October 20, 2022

Don’t fall behind when it comes to cleaning out your filing cabinets. Safely destroy unneeded documents by bringing them to a large mobile shredder from 9 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022, at the Environmental Services Building, 135 Ecology Drive.


Simply place the documents you want to destroy in cardboard boxes, put them in the trunk or back of your vehicle, and bring them to the Environmental Services Building behind Recycle City at the end of Ecology Drive. Please make sure that the boxes are not too heavy to lift. There is a limit of five boxes per vehicle. All of the shredded material will be recycled, including the cardboard boxes. A box is defined as a banker box.


Do not bring computer discs or hanging file rods. If you can tear it, then you can shred it using this service. The documents may contain staples or paper clips.


This service is FREE to St. Peters and Cottleville residents who present a valid Resident Privilege Card. The cost is $5 per box for non-residents. Privilege Cards will be issued at this event. You can also get your Resident Privilege Card prior to coming to the Shred It event. Learn how to get a Resident Privilege Card at
