Town sets Paper Shredding for Earth Day The Town of Saugus, in conjunction with North Shore Bank, will hold a Paper Shredding Event on Saturday, April 20, in celebration of Earth Day. During this free event, Saugus residents will have the opportunity to properly dispose of sensitive documents, such as taxes, bank records, pay stubs, utility bills, and hospital bills in an eco-friendly manner. Files will be shredded on-site in a mobile paper shredder, and then recycled. In Massachusetts, hundreds of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars are spent each year burning paper and recyclables that could have been recycled. Once again, the Town is honoring Earth Day by encouraging residents to shred and recycle those personal documents. The Paper Shredding Event will take place on Saturday, April 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the Department of Public Works at 515 Main Street. Residents are encouraged to call Solid Waste/Recycling Coordinator Lorna Cerbone at 781-231-4036 with any questions.

How incredibly sad what is being done to the school custodians! Where are the churches, teachers, parents, union, and the decent citizens left in this town? We elect people in SAUGUS to represent our wishes. There have to be citizens left in this town who understand the basic needs that are being pulled from these faithful employees and their families. Shame for sure on anyone who does not respond in some way to this sad situation.
