Document Destruction Event Saturday, May 6 from 9:00 - Noon
March 24, 2017 10:00 AM
Winnetka’s Document Destruction Event will be held Saturday, May 6 from 9:00 AM to Noon at the Public Works Yards, 1390 Willow Road. The goal of the program is to assist residents with recycling out-dated or sensitive documents. As a continuing program, the Solid Agency of Northern Cook Country (SWANCC) is providing a one-day document destruction event for residentially-generated paper, such as medical forms, bank statement, personal files, retired tax forms, etc. Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed, but please remove binders.
There is no cost to participate, but residents must live in one of SWANCC’s member communities and ID’s will be checked for proof of residency. Residents will be limited to six file-size boxes or paper shopping bags per vehicle. Please do not bring documents in plastic bags. As resident’s drive up in their vehicles, workers will unload the paper documents into large carts. When full, the carts of paper are emptied into the truck’s cross-shredding machine. At the end of the event, the shredded documents are transported to Groot’s recycling facility in Elk Grove Village and baled before recycled into new paper.
