For Immediate Release
Aug. 24, 2023

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. – Rockdale County is holding its ever-popular Paper Shredding event for Rockdale residents and business owners on Sat., Sept. 9, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., in the rear parking lot of Rockdale Career Academy (RCA) at 1064 Culpepper Drive, Conyers, 30094. The free, half-day event will provide the public with a place to safely discard and recycle old documents.

For several years the event was known to be held at 1400 Parker Road, but due to other events in the area, this year, it will take place in the rear parking lot at RCA. At this location, participants should access the rear parking lot via the school’s entrance on Flat Shoals Road. There is a maximum of 4 banker boxes per vehicle allowed for paper shredding. Participants must provide a photo ID as proof of an address in the County. A Cut Above Shredding, a professional paper shredding company, will have paper shredding trucks on site and will securely handle all items under the close supervision of government staff. This event operates on a first-come,first-served basis. There will be two shredding trucks on site for the event. However, once the shredding trucks are full, shredding services for the day will end. Papers that are loose, folded, or in envelopes are accepted.

Please remember to remove all foreign objects from papers to be shredded, including spring loader/binder clips or glue and adhesives. Additional items that are not accepted include photographs, hanging metal file folders, and three-ring binders. The event is weather-dependent. Should the forecast predict rain, this will render the equipment inoperable, and the event will have to be scheduled for a later date and time.
