The following news release was submitted by State Rep. Emily McAsey's staff:
To help residents securely dispose of sensitive material and prevent identity theft, state Rep. Emily McAsey will host her Fifth Annual Community Shred and Electronics Recycling Day on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 9 a.m. to noon.
This free event will be held at McAsey’s constituent service office located at 209 W. Romeo Rd. in Romeoville.
“Almost everyone has old documents or electronics with sensitive information that they longer need, but are afraid to throw away,” McAsey said. “Securely disposing of these items will help protect you and your family from identity theft. I encourage anyone who has documents, CDs or hard drives with personal information to stop by and have these items safely destroyed and recycled.”
At the event, residents will be able to observe the secure disposal of up to five boxes of paper documents. Residents will also be able to bring old electronics with sensitive information to be properly destroyed and recycled. These services are being provided free of charge.
