Representative Steve Andersson (R-Geneva) and Senator Karen McConnaughay (R-St. Charles) are hosting a free document shredding event.
The event is on Saturday, August 13, from 9 a.m to noon at the Sun City Del Webb Fountain View Center in Huntley, 12940 Del Webb Blvd.
Sen. McConnaughay is pleased to open up this event to the community, as it presents benefits from both a safety and environmental standpoint.
“Shredding not only adds a barrier of security for your personal documents, making them unrecoverable, but the company then recycles the shreds to be used again — preventing further waste in our landfills,” she said.
The members encourage all area residents to attend and bring up to two bags of important documents that need to be properly shredded and destroyed.
“Over time, we collect many paper documents with sensitive and important information,” said Andersson. “Properly destroying these documents is extremely crucial to protect you and your family from fraud or identity theft. This event is an easy and free way to ensure your information is kept private.”
If you have any questions about the upcoming event, please contact Rep. Andersson Office at (630) 457-5460 or Sen. McConnaughay’s office at (847) 214-8245.
