CICERO, Ill. — State Rep. Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, is hosting a community shred day, drug take-back and electronics recycling event in partnership with Metropolitan Water Reclamation Commissioner Kimberly du Buclet and Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart. The event will take place July 9 from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot behind Olympic Theater, 6134 W Cermak, Cicero.

“Shredding documents with personally identifiable information on them is a great way to prevent identity theft while clearing out clutter from your home,” Hernandez said. “This event will also help protect the environment by recycling old electronics and safely disposing of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.”

Event attendees will be able to shred documents with personal information on them that could make them targets for identity theft, such as outdated medical records or bank statements. Old electronic devices, such as televisions, will be accepted for recycling. To prevent drug abuse, residents are also encouraged to bring unwanted, unused and expired prescription drugs and over-the-counter medication to be safely disposed of.

“I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to safely and securely discard unwanted papers, electronics and medication,” said Hernandez. “Providing useful constituent services is a top priority of mine, and I will always work to provide our community with the resources it needs.”

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Hernandez’s full time constituent services office at or 708-222-5240.
