Resident Shredding Day–So Needed, So Next Week

Has anyone noticed the coincidence of Resident Shredding Day always coming up a month after Town Meeting? Clearly there is a large upswing of residents to be shredded — I know my list is long. Actually, the coincidence lies in the fact that just when I think I have lost my sense of humor about the town, the sound of a chainsaw and a town email titled “Resident Shredding Day” make it all better. Be aware, however, if I invite you to meet me at the police station on June 4, you may want to think twice.

Resident Shredding Day is Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 9 am to 1 pm at the Weston Police Station. No non-residents may be shredded–apparently they goop up the apparatus. This event is (factually now) for those who have a great deal of household shredding to be done (things do tend to pile up). Community shredding is the way to go–shred as many as you want–it’s the same price: free.

The Owl would like to thank Anthony Senesi, our town public information officer, for allowing the day to continue to be known as Resident Shredding Day in spite of full knowledge of the implied connotations. Also for working so hard on the very awesome Celebrate Weston Day.

Residents can shred by bringing their victims to the Police Station at 180 Boston Post Road By-Pass June 4 from 9 am to 1 pm. After that, you will need to wait for the next shredding day or use your home shredder. This gets messy.
