With rain in the forecast for Saturday, the Drive-Through Document Shredding Event has been postponed to November 14.

Hosted by the City and Waste Management, the free drive-through event will take place from 9-11 am in the Mission Viejo City Hall parking lot at 200 Civic Center.

Residents and businesses can bring up to five banker-size file boxes (24” wide x 12” high) of paper records for immediate shredding. Documents and boxes must be free of binders, paper clips, plastic sleeves and metal butterfly clips. (CDs, credit cards, three-ring binders, wire dividers, newspapers, magazines and spiral notebooks will NOT be accepted.)

For safety reasons, folks are asked to wear a face mask and remain in their vehicles until served.

For more information, contact 949-470-8458 or greenmv@cityofmissionviejo.org.

You can definitely watch your documents be shredded. Once your materials have been unloaded from the trunk of your car and placed in a 64 gallon trash cart, you can then park in a nearby parking stall and watch the contents of the container be emptied into the shred truck and shredded.

Just wanted to send a much appreciated shout out to whomever developed and administered today’s free shredding event at City Hall. I arrived at 8:40 and shredding was already well under way. The organization was first rate, the progress was fast, I didn’t have to leave my car, and I was all done by 8:50! That is remarkable for a public organization, and, as a resident of Mission Viejo for 30 years, I want to applaud your great efforts. Keep up the good work!!
