STREAMWOOD, Ill. – To help residents protect themselves against identity theft, state Rep. Fred Crespo, D-Hoffman Estates, is hosting a free community document shred event on Saturday, September 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the parking lot of his district office, located at 1014 E. Schaumburg Road in Streamwood.
“Almost everyone knows one person who has been a victim of identity theft in some way,” said Crespo. “And with identity theft on the rise, I am happy to provide this valuable service to the community as it’s a great opportunity for residents to destroy their personal documents, on-site, for free and in an environmentally friendly way.”
Crespo is partnering up with AT&T to provide a safe way to destroy documents that contain personal information, such as old bank statements, outdated medical records, old tax returns, pay stubs, old bills and credit card offers. Due to limited space, participants are asked to limit their shredding materials to two boxes per car. Shredding materials will be accepted on a first-come first-served basis until the truck is full. Please remove all clips, staples, and any other bindings. Also, electronics and household chemical waste will not be collected at this event.
For more information, please contact Crespo’s full-time constituent service office at 630-372-3340.
