Shredding Event

West Donegal Township is partnering with East Donegal Township and Mount Joy Township to host a shredding event on Saturday, September 19th from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon at the East Donegal Township Municipal Building located at 190 Rock Point Road, in Maytown, PA.
This event will be free of charge to all residents living in West Donegal Township, Mount Joy Township, and East Donegal Township. We will be limiting the amount of shredding to four boxes or bags of paper per property to be shredded.

We are asking those participating in this event for donations of canned goods and boxed items (monetary donations also accepted) which will be given to the local food banks. Their greatest needs include canned meats, juice, canned/boxed pasta, jams/jellies, cereals, pancake mixes and syrup, and paper products. Baby food and formula will also be accepted. Please no perishable items. Donations should be non-expired, non-breakable, and all items should be in unopened containers. Glass, frozen food, fresh produce/meats or home-made food will not be accepted. Your help is truly appreciated by those in need in our community!
