FORT CARSON, Colo. — The Directorate of Public Works (DPW) is hosting a paper shredding event Sept. 17, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at building 3710 north of Gate 20 off Specker Avenue, as part of national Pollution Prevention Week, celebrated Sept. 21-27, 2020.
The event is used to increase awareness of Pollution Prevention Week, and to provide a venue for shredding and recycling of paper.
Post community members can bring all unwanted, unclassified paper, including old bank statements, credit card offers, cancelled checks, old medical records, pay check stubs, etc., to be shredded and recycled to help Fort Carson reduce waste going to the landfill. The event is free and open to all DOD ID card holders. No classified documents will be accepted.
Ensure documents brought in are free of trash such as binders, paper clips, etc., for ease of processing.
Due to COVID-19, social distancing and masks are required while dropping off paper.
