Andersson’s Paper Shredding Event a Success

Special thanks to ComEd for sponsoring
this year's Shred Event!
State Representative Steve Andersson held a successful paper shredding event over the weekend at the Carillon Community in Pingree Grove.

Rep. Andersson has hosted an annual paper shredding event for his constituents to help prevent residents’ personal information from being stolen and used for fraud or identity theft.

The event drew a crowd of area residents, who dropped off documents to be safely shredded and discarded on site.

“Residents were grateful to have the opportunity to access such a necessary service, and I was happy to provide them with it in a convenient manner,” said Andersson. “This event is the best opportunity to help people recycle while providing 100 percent peace of mind that their personal documents are securely shredded.”

If you are concerned about identity theft and feel your information has been compromised, the Illinois Attorney General has created an identity theft hotline. You can call the hotline number, or visit the website for more information on identity theft in Illinois here.
