Shred Day 2020 for City of Sylvania residents
Saturday July 25, 2020
As a result, AccuShred will offer on-site destruction of up to 50 pounds of personal
documents, or approximately three banker boxes, free of charge. Additional boxes or bags or
documents will be destroyed for a fee of $3.00 per container.
Residents are asked to bring boxed or bagged documents to the collection site, located at the Sylvania Administration Building, 6730 Monroe Street, Sylvania, Ohio, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Saturday, July 25, 2020. Residents will be able to unload the material and empty the contents into a large bin.
The contents of the bin will be dumped into the shredder and shredded on the site. Residents may stay in their vehicles and watch their material be shredded if they wish. Documents can also be taken to or picked up by AccuShred and other accredited document destruction companies with the same results.
Electronic recycling is happening for the fifth year at the 2020 Shred Day event. The
following items are accepted:
Computers / CPU’s and Laptops, Mainframes, Servers, Peripherals / Computer Cables and Any Wire / Telephones, Cell Phones and Telephone Systems / Fax Machines and Central Office Equipment / Printers and Copiers / Banking and Financial Equipment / Electronic Circuit Boards and Components/ Small Appliances / VCR, DVD and CD players / Stereo Equipment, Games, PDA’s.

The goal of this project is to show Sylvania area residents how to protect themselves
from identity theft while diverting a significant amount of paper and electronics from our local
According to a landfill audit conducted by the Ohio Department of Natural
Resources, Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention, more than 65% of what is disposed of in
our local landfills is paper. 25% of electronics are recycled today resulting in a reduction of
landfill space by approximately 600 thousand tons per year. There are many other
environmental advantages listed by the United States EPA. Local recyclers, including State
Paper and Metal, offer recycling alternatives for this material. The efforts of Sylvania residents
and Shred Day have accounted for 90,000 pounds of recycled paper in just the last four years.
