All residents participating in this event must abide by the following procedures:

  • The vehicle must have a valid RDF sticker, or driven by a Wellesley resident.
  • All occupants of the vehicle must remain in the vehicle at all times.
  • Documents must be clearly marked or distinguished (in a brown paper bag or disposable cardboard box) in the TRUNK of the vehicle. No documents will be taken from the passenger seat, middle seats, or rear seats of a vehicle. Documents may also be placed in the bed of a pickup, in a trailer, or in the rear most section of a van.
  • Residents can bring in any documents they would like to have destroyed. NO binders, plastic folders or metal can go through the shredding machine.
  • The documents will be moved by RDF staff and/or staff of the shredding company.
  • Documents are securely destroyed on-site in a mobile shredding truck. Please note: residents can NOT bring home the material after it is shredded.

If ALL of the above listed procedures cannot be met, please hold onto your documents until the next event; hopefully the procedures won’t be as strict.
