ROMEOVILLE, Ill. — State Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, is partnering with the Village of Romeoville and state Rep. Dagmara Avelar, D-Bolingbrook, to host a community shred day on Saturday, May 13 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the village hall parking lot located at 1050 W. Romeo Road in Romeoville.
“Shredding documents with personally identifiable information on them is a great way to prevent identity theft while clearing out clutter from your home,” said Manley. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to safely and securely discard their unwanted papers.”
Shred Day is an opportunity for residents to safely dispose of documents with personal information on them that could make them targets for identity theft, like medical records or bank statements. There will be a two box maximum per vehicle.
“Identity theft and other types of fraud can have devastating personal and financial consequences. The safe destruction of documents is one of the easiest ways to prevent these types of crime,” Manley said. “I’d like to thank the Village of Romeoville and state Rep. Avelar for their partnership in this event so that the community can take advantage of this free service.”
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Manley’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 815-725-2741.
