The Fairfax County Solid Waste Management Program will be sponsoring one secure document shredding event in each supervisory district per calendar year.  

This Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, the program comes to Vienna, at Oakton High School, 2900 Sutton Road, Vienna.

These events are only open to Fairfax County residents along with residents of the Towns of Vienna, Herndon and Clifton and the Cities of Fairfax and Falls Church.  

Documents from businesses will not be accepted.

Thumbs up:
  • Residential material of a sensitive nature such as tax documents, financial records, etc.  (Please recycle junk mail and magazines through your normal collection service.) 
  • Up to five medium-sized packing boxes per vehicle.
Thumbs down:
  • BINDERS of any type (3-ring, plastic, spiral, metal)
  • Plastic document covers
  • Wet or moist paper
  • Hanging file folders with metal support bars
  • Metal binder clips
  • Electronic media including computer disks and diskettes or CDs
  • Books, either hardback or paperback
  • Credit cards
  • Magazines, catalogs and newspapers (unless just the page with the address)
  • Film or photographs
Here's how it works:
  • Residents drive through a line as directed by staff.
  • For safety reasons, residents MUST remain in their vehicles.
  • County staff remove boxes from cars and trucks and empty paper into rolling carts.
  • Once full, the carts are taken to the shredding truck where they are emptied into a shredder.
  • All documents are cross-cut shred on-site, by a private contractor, on the day of the event.
  • Following the event, all paper is delivered to a local recycling facility for processing.
  • Written certification of shredding will not be provided.
