We all have a stack of papers sitting in our home that we don’t need anymore.
Maybe it’s a few pieces of mail that you know are probably junk, but you think there may be some of your information on them. Or maybe it’s an old lease from three apartments ago. Maybe it’s a box of your homework from elementary school that your parents held on to for whatever reason.
On Feb. 17 in Johns Creek, you can safely shred all that unwanted paper for free, if you’re a resident of the city.
The event will be held near the Panera Bread at 11715 Medlock Bridge Road from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It is presented by the city, Panera and Keep Johns Creek Beautiful.
All paper will be shredded on-site and then recycled. There is a limit of how much paper one can bring, at 10 boxes per-person.
The event will also accept and recycle cooking fats, oils, grease and fluorescent light bulbs. For the light bulbs, there is a $5 recycling fee.
Lightly used clothes and shoes will also be accepted and donated to the American Kidney Services.
