Shredding Events

Rocky Hill residents only.

Periodically, the Department of Public Works offers public shredding events as a service to Rocky Hill residents. Shredding sensitive personal documents is an important aspect of protecting your identity against theft. View the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection's Guidelines for shredding and saving personal documents.

All material collected at Town shredding events is recycled.
