The Brimfield Police Department and several local businesses are sponsoring a paper recycling and shredding day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday in the parking lot of the police station at 1287 Tallmadge Road. Old newspapers, junk mail, envelopes, phone books, magazines, catalogs and office paper will be accepted for recycling, and up to five grocery-type bags of confidential or personal paperwork may be brought for shredding. The Brimfield Police Department DARE Program will benefit financially from the recycled paper thanks to a partnership with the Abitibi Bowater Paper Retriever Company, based on the weight of the paper collected. A Neoshred truck will be on hand to help shred personal papers to help prevent identity theft. Volunteers will be on hand to help unload vehicles. Sponsors of the Neoshred truck include Hometown Bank, 4023 S.R. 43, Brimfield, and RJ's Auto Pros, 310 Tallmadge Road.
