The Hanover Township Green Team and Environmental Commission sincerely thank the residents and municipal employees who participated in the November 14th Community Shred Day and Food Drive dual event.   Nearly three tons of paper were securely shredded and 1,500 pounds of non-perishable food were donated to benefit the Interfaith Food Pantry.

One hundred eighty Hanover Township residents came out on Saturday, November 14th to participate in the Green Team/Environmental Commission’s Community Shred Day event and Food Drive to benefit the Interfaith Food Pantry.   Nearly three tons of paper – a record-setting amount of material for the municipality for this event – were securely shredded on-site by Security Shredding, the Township’s event vendor.  The food drive, which will benefit the Interfaith Food Pantry (IFP), generated 1,500 pounds of non-perishable items that will assist the IFP in feeding Morris County neighbors in need over the upcoming holidays.
