Document Shredding Event at Fremont Township on May 13

We have scheduled a document shredding event for Saturday, May 13 from 8:30 am til 11:30 am at the Fremont Administration Building. Enter through the highway department at 22376 Erhart Road. If the truck fills earlier than 11:30, the event will end.

You may bring the equivalent of 3 boxes to shred. Staples and paper clips are fine. The most efficient way is to place your items in a paper grocery bag. No plastic bags. To keep the line moving, you will not be able to exit your car and watch the shredding.

This shredding event is for documents only. Please recycle your coupons, magazines and junk mail with your weekly recycling. They will not be accepted.

Pop your trunk and we will take the items. Do not leave your car.

We will not accept any binders or hanging file folders or electronic items because they catch on fire in the truck. If the truck fills up before 11:30, the event will be over.

We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your patience.

Letter Carrier Food Drive on May 13

Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and The Fremont Township Food Pantry receives food from this drive.

To donate, just place a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the second Saturday in May-May 13. The carrier will do the rest.
