A briefcase-sized paper shredder will do the job, but it can be time-consuming.
For people with a whole lot of paper to dispose of, a truck-sized shredder will pay a visit to Penetanguishene on May 2.
The community shredding day is also a fundraiser for the Midland Area Reading Council and Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Simcoe.
The truck holds 4.6 tonnes of shredded paper, all of which will be recycled, which organizers say will save about 55 trees.
The truck will be at the Village Square Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations for the two community organizations will be accepted.
