GREENWICH, Conn. -- Greenwich residents shredded more than seven tons of paper on Nov 2.

They shredded sensitive documents, old checks, medical and Social Security records, according to a press release. The total saved roughly 120 large trees that "will remain standing because all the shreds will be properly recycled," according to the release.

"The bonus was the generous donations of canned goods collected to stock shelves at Greenwich Neighbor-to-Neighbor," representatives said in the release. "The cost to shred a box of paper was a can of tuna or fruit. Residents embraced the opportunity to shred sensitive documents and donate to the food collection."

The First Bank of Greenwich and Santaguida Sanitation sponsored the event and plan to participate in an April shredding day to be organized by Greenwich Recycling Advisory Board and Greenwich Green & Clean, according to the release.
