Despite wet weather this morning in Findlay, the Hancock Solid Waste District's Paper Recycling Day was a big success.
The event, which ran from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. brought out more than one hundred cars, dropping off several tons of paper to be shredded and recycled.
People could drop off items like bank information and cancelled checks, outdated bills, mortgage and loan information, even medical information, obsolete invoices, letters and envelopes.
Melissa Edson with the Hancock Solid Waste District says an event like this helps keep your personal information safe.
The Hancock Solid Waste District is hosting a couple of other recycling days.
On August 17th it's an Electronics Recycling Day where people can bring in old televisions, computers and just about anything electronic to be recycled.
On September 7th there will be a Household Hazardous Waste Day where people can bring in unused paint, insecticides, fertilizers and cleaning chemicals.
