In order to reduce the amount of waste generated by Smyrna residents and other community members, Keep Smyrna Beautiful hosts two community document shredding events annually. These events provide a means for safe and secure document shredding and recycling. There is no charge for the event but donations are collected on-site. The document shredding event is open to everyone, you do not have to be a Smyrna resident to participate.
In 2020, over 21,000 pounds of documents were recycled. Since this event began in 2009, an estimated 208,000 pounds of paper has been diverted from the landfill.
This event is for paper only. Participants can bring up to 5 copy paper sized boxes of documents. All binders, clips, and folders must be removed prior.

We are asking that everyone who attends this event stay in their vehicle. Volunteers will collect all documents from vehicles. Any bag/box/bin that hold the documents for shredding will not be returned.
