Document Shred and Drug Take Back Event

Shred and Pill DayThe City of Hendersonville will sponsor a secure, Shred Day for City residents on Friday, May 17, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., in the parking lot of Patton Park, 59 E. Clairmont Drive. Shred-it will have their shredding truck in the parking lot to allow residents to dispose of sensitive materials. Residents of Hendersonville are invited to bring up to two boxes (or 50 lbs.) of paper items to be shredded. Suggested items to shred are financial statements, cancelled checks, credit card statements, payroll stubs, insurance forms, old tax returns, forms from doctor's offices, etc. This event is not for businesses. The public can simply drop their documents off or stay and watch their documents destroyed. The event will happen rain or shine. If the shredding truck fills up before 10:30, the event will be over.

During this time, the Hendersonville Police Department along with Hope Rx will host a Drug Take Back event to allow citizens to dispose of expired/unused medication, such as prescription and over the counter pills, vitamins, ointments, and patches. No chemotherapy drugs, needles or EpiPens will be accepted.

To make this part of a community outreach effort, the City is asking that residents coming to the event bring items to donate to the Storehouse and IAM. Suggested items are canned fruits and vegetables, canned chili and beef stew, and toiletry items.
