The West Chicago Environmental Commission will again be hosting an On-site Paper-Shredding event on Saturday, June 5, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. – *12:00 p.m. at the METRA parking lot. The main entrance to the west METRA parking lot will be used to enter, the trucks will be setup in the east METRA lot and cars will exit out of the east METRA lot entrance. A map is provided for illustration purposes.
Confidential materials are destroyed on premises by trained professionals in a matter of minutes while you watch. Local residents and businesses may bring up to 10 boxes for on-site document shredding. Paper may also be brought in plastic bags which will be emptied into the tote for shredding. Bags and/or boxes will need to be disposed of by those bringing them as they cannot be shredded.
Accurate Document Destruction, Inc. of Elk Grove Village provides the shredding service. Last year 20,100 pounds or 10.05 tons of paper were shred.
*The event is scheduled until 12:00 p.m. however if the shredding trucks reach capacity no other materials can be accepted. Masks will be required at the entrance of the event.
