Bring your papers for shredding, and help gift drive

The Wood County Commissioners, Wood County Solid Waste District and Wood County Children Services are sponsoring a paper shredding for toys event.

For donation of an unwrapped toy or cash to the Wood County Children Services Holiday Gift Drive, the public can securely shred up to five bags or boxes of paper items.

The event will be held Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Wood County Fairgrounds, south parking lot, 13800 W. Poe Road, Bowling Green. Allshred Services will shred all the items on site, and the paper will be re-purposed into tissue products.

Wood County Children Services is involved with children from newborn through teenagers and is encouraging the public who participate in this event to remember this when selecting toys or gifts for the drive.
