During the course of the four-hour event, DSWS staff and recycling volunteers helped unload confidential paper from the 588 vehicles that drove through the event. A total of 23,832 pounds (11.9 tons) of confidential paper was shredded and recycled, and 504 pounds of cardboard boxes was also recycled. The reusable clothing/household items donated to the National Children’s Center filled one-quarter of a box truck.
