Paper Shredding Event: August 20


Winnetka’s Document Destruction Event will be held on Saturday, August 20, 2022, from 9 AM to 12 PM at the Public Works Yards at 1390 Willow Road. The goal of the program is to assist residents with recycling outdated or sensitive documents.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 statements, personal files, old tax forms, etc. Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed, but please remove paper from binders. 

 There is no cost to participate, but residents must live in one of SWANCC’s member communities and IDs 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 SWANCC cannot accept them. As residents 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.
