Blue Earth County will begin offering free drop-off shredding services at the Ponderosa Landfill beginning Tuesday, September 3.

Services will be available to all county residents and users can bring up to two bankers boxes per day. Users will need to check in at the landfill office upon arrival and will then deposit their materials into a locked box. Materials accepted for shredding include paper, envelopes, file folders, small booklets, and duplicate paper. Staples and paper clips may be left in these materials. Shredded materials will be baled and recycled.
