WARREN - The Tribune Chronicle is offering document shredding as part of its Earth Day recycling program.
Len Blose, general manager of the Tribune Chronicle, said Protect-N-Shred of Cortland will be onsite from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 22 for residential shredding of up to four boxes of documents per household.
''We are excited to be part of this service for Earth Day. This is our way of providing a service to the residential community just as we do for the commercial community,'' Bill Burnham, president of Protect-N-Shred, said.
Blose said people who may not be able to bring items during the designated shredding time can still bring them. He said the documents and items will be secured at the location and then be shredded.
''As a company, we are very committed to recycling and helping the environment and are one of the leaders of recycling in the county,'' Blose said. ''We are pleased to offer this service to the community.''
As always, residents also can drop off newspapers, phone books, hardback books, office paper and mail to be recycled.
The Tribune Chronicle will offer an Earth Day recycling collection from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 22 and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 23 at the Tribune parking lot, Vine Avenue and South Street, Warren. For information, call Sue Shafer at 330-841-1696.
This is the fourth year for the recycling event. In 2012, the Tribune Chronicle recycled 904,072 pounds of newsprint and 31,406 pounds of aluminum.
For each pound of recyclable paper dropped off, River Valley Paper Co. of Akron will make a donation to the Hope Chest Foundation, which serves local residents in need.
