Every year the Times-Union gets several calls and emails asking when is the next free shredding day in Jacksonville. Well, this year that day is Saturday. 

And again this year it will include a free tree giveaway.

Keep Jacksonville Beautiful, Greenscape, Republic Services and the city are making it all happen for America Recycles Day. This weekend’s event will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Parking Lot E at the TIAA Bank Field, 1680 E. Adams St.

It will be drive-thru service in which people can drop off up to two 30-gallon bags or boxes of paper documents for longtime sponsor Republic Services to haul off for shredding.
