“The County is proud to partner with our municipalities to provide our residents with multiple opportunities to eliminate unnecessary paperwork and documents,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Monmouth County Department of Public Works and Engineering.  “These free events not only help residents declutter their homes but also can protect their personal information that may be on files such as bank statements, medical records, legal documents and utility bills from identity thieves. On behalf of the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners, I would like to thank our partners for assisting us in offering this important service to our residents.”
