PEORIA, Ill. – State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, is encouraging residents to properly dispose of old paperwork and protect themselves from identity theft at her annual community shred day scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the north parking lot of the Landmark Recreation Center, located at 3225 Dries Ln. in Peoria.
“Whether it’s old receipts or outdated medical documents, this is a good opportunity to get rid of some clutter while having the peace of mind it’s been destroyed,” Gordon-Booth said. “Identity theft is a problem that too many are forced to deal with, but by responsibly disposing documents with personal information you can better protect yourself and your family.”
Services at the event will be provided by AAA Certified Confidential Security Corp. Residents are asked to limit themselves at no more than 10 boxes of documents for shredding. Paper clips, staples and other bindings should be removed. Recycling for old computer disks and hard drives will also be available.
