Free, Secure Paper-Shredding Event Saturday, March 27 

9am – 1pm at the Somerset County Public Works Facility 410 Roycefield Road, Hillsborough 

Operation Secure Shred, sponsored by the Somerset County Board of County Commissioners, will begin hosting the 2021 document shredding events throughout the county. The first event for the season will be held on Saturday, March 27th from 9am until 1pm, rain or shine, at the Somerset County Public Works Garage, located at 410 Roycefield Road in Hillsborough.  

Operation Secure Shred began in 2007 and is offered throughout the county in various locations from March until November. The program is intended to offer residents a safe and easy way to dispose of bulk personal information. In collaboration with the Somerset County Consumer Protection Office and the County’s Records Management Office, documents will be commercially shredded safely, privately and properly by trained, licensed and bonded document-destruction specialists.  

"Shred-it events, such as these, provide our residents with the occasion to safely and properly dispose of personal documents, while protecting against identity theft," stated Mayor Shawn Lipani.    

“In total there will be 10 events on Saturdays, throughout the County beginning on March 27th in Hillsborough,” added Mayor Lipani.  Additional Hillsborough dates are April 24th, August 14th, and August 28th.

The complete 2021 Operation Secure Shred schedule is available at the Somerset County website at
