Back by popular demand, a mobile shredding truck sponsored by Midway Document Destruction’s Mobile Shredding Truck will be providing free paper shredding and recycling to residents of the 49th Ward.
Stop by my office at 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis) on Saturday, April 13th, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and get rid of any old or unwanted papers. Because the documents are shredded, you won’t have to worry about anyone being able to read your private information. Just bring your old documents to the truck, where they will be shredded on the spot in front of you and then taken away to be recycled.
Bring any documents you no longer need or want but that might contain personal or private information. Examples include:
- Bank Statements
- Outdated medical records
- Pay stubs
- Old bills and receipts
- Credit card offers
- Tax returns older than seven years
I’ll see you on Saturday!
