Troy Township Supervisor Joseph D. Baltz is proud to announce that Troy Township will host its semi-annual Shredding Event on Saturday, May 1, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Troy Township residents can bring their personal papers and documents to the township parking lot on the west side of the township offices and community center to be shredded by Iron Mountain. Each resident must show proof of township residency and is allowed to have two letter size file or copy paper boxes shredded. Shredding is for personal papers only. Shredding for business purposes is not allowed. Please be courteous to other residents and abide by the two box limit.
Troy Township is proud to once again partner with the Shorewood Police Department and will be offering medication disposal along with the shredding event. Township residents can bring their unneeded medication so that it can be disposed of properly.
Make sure to bring only residentially generated medication items. No medications from businesses or doctor’s offices will be accepted. Use a permanent marker to black out your name or personal information on the label. Or you may empty all your pills into a Ziplock bag and bring that.
Needles appropriately contained within an approved sharps container will now be accepted at the event! Bio One Clean Up has agreed to partner with us and will be onsite to collect and properly dispose of the needles. IMPORTANT….only needles that are properly contained within an approved sharps container will be accepted. You can purchase approved sharps containers at most drug stores or pharmacies.
A list of accepted medications and more information about the event in general can be found on our website at http://www.troytownship.com under the News, Notes & Events section.
The Shedding Event and Medication Disposal Drop Off Event will take place simultaneously on Saturday, May 1, 2021, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at 25448 Seil Road in Shorewood. Please note that the event will end promptly at 12:00 p.m. and could possibly end sooner if the shredding truck fills up, due to inclement/hazardous weather or maybe cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
This is NOT an event for businesses. For more information please call 815-744-1968.
