The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County is hosting a document destruction and electronics recycling event Saturday in Elk Grove Village.
Residents who live in the agency's member communities are allowed to bring paper documents in need of shredding, such as medical forms, bank statements, personal files and retired tax forms. Some electronics also will be accepted for recycling, including computers, copy and fax machines, cameras, CDs, DVDs, microwaves and phones.
Materials from businesses, institutions or schools will not be accepted, officials said.
The event is being held from 9 a.m. to noon at the fire station at 1000 Oakton St. For more information and to see the list of agency member communities, call (847) 724-9205 or visit swancc.org.
