SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, is inviting area residents to her annual Recycle and Shred Day on Saturday, June 9 from 9 a.m. to noon at her district office, located at 1677 Montgomery Rd. in Aurora.
“We are looking to protect local residents from identity theft, forgery and other crimes that can happen when sensitive documents are not safely disposed of,” Kifowit said. “Each year, the community response to our shred day event is incredibly positive, and I am glad to offer this free, convenient service to our residents once again.”
Kifowit’s Recycle and Shred Day event will offer local families the opportunity to recycle old electronics and shred paperwork for free. Residents are welcome to bring documents that contain personally identifiable information to be safely shredded, such as bank statements, outdated medical records, old tax returns and other sensitive documents.
Kifowit will be joined by Fox Metro and the Association for Individual Development. Fox Metro will accept unused or expired medications so they can be properly disposed. The Association for Individual Development will be accepting computer equipment, cell phones, stereos, and other electronic appliances for free recycling; TVs and computer monitors will not be accepted.
“As we responsibly dispose of items we no longer need or use, we are protecting our community and our environment,” Kifowit said. “I hope residents will take advantage of this opportunity to clear out some space in their homes and benefit our planet.”
For more information, please contact Kifowit’s constituent service office by phone at 630-585-1308, or by email at Stephanie.Kifowit@att.net. Residents can keep up with the latest events and news by visiting www.ILDistrict84.com, or by liking Kifowit’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/ILDistrict84.
