In honor of Arbor Day, the City of Lowell is giving away free planting kits for kids and hosting a free community Shred-It event at City Hall.
Our free planting kit will consist of a small planter, flower seeds, and gardening soil. We will also include some tree activity ideas for kids to do at home! The kits will be available from 10am-12pm in the City Hall parking lot, on a limited, first-come, first-serve basis.
Our community Shred-It event promotes raising awareness about identity theft and fraud by reminding local residents about the importance of securely destroying personal documents.
This event is for secure PAPER document destructions. Regular sized paper clips, staples, folders, and envelopes are all safe for the shredding machines and can be included with the documents.
Any items you need shredded must be handed directly to Shred-It. City employees or City volunteers cannot handle your items. If you need any additional information, call the direct line of Shred-It at (800) 697-4733.
For questions on the kids planting kits, please contact Lowell Parks and Recreation at (704) 824-3518, option 4.
