The Borough of Avalon held its first-ever community paper shredding day on Saturday, May 14th. The free event attracted hundreds of people in the community who wanted to shred sensitive documents. The paper shredding event was held at the Avalon Public Works facility at 15th Street and Dune Drive for three hours, starting at 9:00am.
According to Avalon Public Works Director Bill Macomber, the event was offered as a free service to Avalon residents and property owners. It was completely financed by a recycling grant that came from the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority as a reward for proactive recycling efforts.
