SHOREWOOD, Ill. – To protect Shorewood and its surrounding communities from identity theft and prevent paper waste, State Rep. Larry Walsh, D-Elwood, is hosting a free shred day on Thursday, April 25 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Shorewood Village Hall.

“Identity thieves often pick through people’s trash to find bank statements, receipts and other documents that contain personal information,” said Walsh “While there are other avenues criminals can use to gain access to one’s identity, it is crucial that we do what we can to limit our personal information’s potential exposure.”
Walsh will partner with local community leaders to provide free shredding services to local residents. Please note that no electronics will be accepted, and participants are limited to two boxes. In addition, Illinois Treasurer Mike Frerichs will have I-Cash staff at the event to help members of the community file for unclaimed property.

For more information, please contact Walsh’s district office at 815-730-8600.
