The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County will conduct a document destruction and electronics recycling event from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 22 at Elk Grove Village's Fire Station No. 8, 1000 Oakton St.
Agency workers will unload the paper documents and electronics from area residents' vehicles. The event is free to the public, but residents must live in one of SWANCC's member communities to participate. Identification will be checked for proof of residency. Materials from businesses, institutions or schools will not be accepted.
Typical documents to shred include medical forms, bank statements, personal files and retired tax forms. Staples and paper clips are acceptable, but binders should be removed. Residents will be limited to six file-size boxes or paper shopping bags per vehicle. All paper is shredded on-site by Accurate Document Destruction, a division of Groot Industries, and the electronics will be recycled by Supply-Chain Services.
