About Document Shredding

The City of Cambridge holds two free Document Shredding Events annually for Cambridge residents only. Documents will be destroyed on the spot in a highly advanced technical mobile shredding truck and sent for recycling. This event is based on first come, first served, or until the truck is full to capacity. Limit 5 paper size boxes per household or equivalent. Information on consumer rights and safety will also be available at this event. Reserved parking is available on Bigelow Street adjacent to City Hall. Any meter that has a Reserved parking sign can be used temporarily for this event.

2024 Document Shredding Days

Events will be held from 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., in front of Cambridge Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Ave.
