The Orange County Solid Waste Management Department is holding another Shred-A-Thon Saturday in Hillsborough.

If you’re an Orange County resident or business, you can bring up to five “banker”-sized boxes of paper to be shredded, confidentially and at no cost.

Saturday’s Shred-A-Thon will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hampton Pointe Shopping Center on Route 86, at the 24-hour recycling drop-off site behind Home Depot.


Expect construction Saturday morning on North Churton Street in Hillsborough, as a PSNC Energy contractor will be working to install a gas line.

The construction will be taking place just south of Route 70. Town government is reminding drivers to be cautious if driving through that area.


Chapel Hill Transit will be providing additional bus service on the afternoon of Thursday, October 17, for people leaving UNC campus early in advance of the Tar Heel football game that night.

Allow extra travel time that day, as traffic congestion will be causing some delays.

Additional service will be provided on the CCX, CPX, JFX, PX and 420 Hillsborough Express routes, starting around 3:00 p.m. Thursday. Between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m., the F and J routes will be detoured along Rosemary Street to accommodate “Tar Heel Downtown.” Visit for additional information.
