FREE Shredding of Confidential Documents!

It is that time of the year again when confidential documents are sorted, gathered and brought to a destination where you will watch them be shredded. Yes, shredding is not just done in offices. In your household, you should also watch out for those bills, bank statements, etc. Sensitive documents that only you should have access to and when you need to throw them away, you should do so in pieces. This way, no one else will be able to see them and use them to your detriment.

The best part is? In Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, you can find shredding events for FREE! All you need to do is show up with your boxes of documents. In most of these events, you will even see or hear how they will turn your documents to confetti.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started on your spring cleaning and come to the shredding event at 5127 Oakton St., Skokie, IL 60077 for a FREE shredding event at the Community Shredding Day at Skokie Farmers Market! from 9 AM to 12 PM.
