CHICAGO – Continuing his efforts to provide services to area residents, State Representative Arthur Turner, D-Chicago, is hosting a Free Shred Day on Saturday, July 27 from 9:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the 10th District Police Station, located at 3315 W. Ogden Ave.
At the 2019 9th District Shred Day, residents will have the opportunity to safely dispose of identity-sensitive documents, such as credit card statements, old documents, and other information sensitive documents.
“Providing residents with resources to protect their identity and with needed services is an essential part of my job as State Representative,” said Turner. “This Shred Day is an opportunity for community members to securely get rid of any old documents that could put their identity in jeopardy.”
Turner’s Annual Shred Day is open to all area residents to dispose of old, important documents; business shredding will not be accepted. Participants are limited to two (2) boxes per car, and are asked to remove any bindings (paper clips, staples, etc.) prior to the event. Shredding material will be accepted until the truck reaches capacity.
“Community members, neighbors and our elders should be able to safely dispose of old documents without worrying about someone stealing their information,” said Turner. “I encourage all to bring their documents, old mail, and the like, on Free Shred Day Saturday, July 27 from 9:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the 10th District Police Station, located at 3315 W. Ogden Ave.”
