FORT CARSON, Colo. — The Directorate of Public Works (DPW) is hosting an Earth Day paper shredding event April 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at building 3710, north of Gate 20 off Specker Avenue, as part of the national Earth Day observance.

Post community members can bring all unwanted documents, including old bank statements, credit card offers, cancelled checks, old medical records, paycheck stubs, etc., to shred it, recycle it and help Fort Carson celebrate Earth Day by reducing waste from going to the landfill. The event is free and open to all ID card holders. (No classified documents will be accepted.)

Ensure documents brought in are free of trash and non-paper items (binders, paper clips, etc.) for ease of processing.
