CAUTION: Businesses and residents may want to use caution when disposing of documents that contain confidential information (social security numbers, banking information, health information, etc.).
RECYCLE: There are local companies that shred confidential documents to destroy confidential information and often recycle the shredded material. An internet search such as “shred documents York PA” will show businesses that offer this service. If businesses or residents shred their own documents, please keep in mind this material is not curbside or dop-off recyclable in most York County municipalities. To find out what is recyclable in your municipality, contact them directly. Shredded paper documents contained in bags are recyclable at the Continental Paper Grading paper recycling drop-off.

TRASH: The York County Solid Waste Authority offers an Assured Destruction disposal procedure for York County businesses and residents to safely and securely destroy such materials at the York County Resource Recovery Center.
