City Document Shred Event

The City of Hendersonville will sponsor its popular Document Shred Event for City residents on Friday, May 19, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. This year’s event will be held in Patton Park located at 114 E. Clairmont Drive in Hendersonville.

Shred-it will have its shredding truck at the Patton Pool parking lot to allow residents to dispose of sensitive materials. City of Hendersonville residents are invited to bring up to two boxes (or up to 50 lbs.) of paper items to be shredded. Suggested items to shred are financial statements, canceled checks, credit card statements, payroll stubs, insurance forms, old tax returns, forms from doctor's offices, etc. This event is not for business shredding. The public can simply drop their documents off or stay and watch their documents be destroyed. The event will happen rain or shine. If the shredding truck fills up before 10:30, the event will be over.  

To make this part of a community outreach effort, the City is asking that residents coming to the event bring non-perishable pantry items to donate to Interfaith Assistance Ministry (IAM). Suggested items are listed on IAM’s website at
