CHICAGO – State Rep. Fran Hurley is inviting residents to clear out old paperwork and safely dispose of prescription drugs at a free shred day and prescription takeback scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25 from 9-11 a.m. at CrossWinds Church, located at 10835 S. Pulaski Rd. in Chicago.

The event will be co-hosted with Ald. Matt O’Shea, state Sen. Bill Cunningham and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart’s office.

“This is a good opportunity to get a jump start on spring cleaning,” Hurley said. “Particularly when it comes to identity theft, you want to make sure you’re properly disposing of documents that have personal identifying information. This event allows you to shred large quantities of old receipts, bill statements and other documents safely and quickly.”

Designed as a drive-up service, residents will be able to drop off items and watch their documents be shredded on site if they choose. Participants should have their paper documents in loose bundles with staples, paper and binder clips removed. Prescription medications should be in loose plastic bags or in fluorescent bottles.
