Community Shred/Habitat For Humanity Collection Event

The City of Parma Heights is teaming up with Habitat for Humanity and holding a joint event on Saturday, July 25, 2015. Both events will run simultaneously from 9:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. at the Parma Heights Service Garage located in the Greenbrier Commons. Proof of residency is required. 

These Shred Events are always well attended as they provide residents with a safe, secure, and convenient way to shred their confidential documents. Now residents can bring the paper they want to shred and, at the same time, drop off any donations they have for Habitat for Humanity in one convenient trip. Habitat for Humanity has asked for donations of usable household furniture and appliances to help the mission of Habitat in improving housing in our area and we were happy to assist.

“The Shred Events are for residential use only. Residents are asked to please limit their documents to five grocery store bags or two copy-size paper boxes per family,” said Building, Housing and Recycling Coordinator Michele Teresi. 

Habitat is looking for: furniture, appliances (ranges, refrigerators, dish washers, washer/dryers), kitchen equipment, sinks, toilets, vanities, kitchen counters, landscaping tools and materials, electrical/plumbing fixtures, vanities, tools, bricks/blocks, shingles and general building materials. All items must be usable and complete. No paint, computers, clothing or bedding. A tax receipt is available.  Arrangements can be made for Habitat to pick up larger items by calling 216-429-3631, Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

One more Shred Event is scheduled for later this year on November 14th.

Residents with questions are encouraged to contact the Service Department at 440-884-9607.
