Westchester County's DEF conducts Mobile Shredding and Drug Disposal Events, as well as Food Rescue Forums. If you need to dispose of hazardous materials, shred documents, or want to learn more about food rescue initiatives, please visit us at the Household Material Recovery Facility.
Service at the events works on a first-come-first-served basis. In extreme weather, when working conditions are deemed unsafe, events may be cancelled or terminated early. Be advised that on occasion, at a highly attended event, the Mobile Shredder unit can reach its maximum capacity for paper shredding before closing time. Although infrequent, residents should be aware of this and open minded of the possibility of an early closure. On the day of an event, residents can call the county's Recycling HelpLine at (914) 813-5425 to check on a cancellation or early closure.
