49th ward shred-a-thon

Do you have a pile of private documents you no longer need but no shredder to securely dispose of them? Bring them to 49th Ward "SHRED-A-THON" next Wednesday 11/17 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis).

Midway Document Destruction's mobile shredding truck will be in the lot outside the office, offering free paper shredding to 49th Ward residents. You can get rid of any old or unwanted papers containing sensitive information, and protect yourself against identity theft, which could be a problem if you put these documents into the trash.

Bring any documents you no longer need or want but that might contain personal or private information, and have them shredded on the spot, then taken away to be recycled. Examples include:

• Bank statements
• Outdated medical records
• Pay stubs
• Old bills and receipts
• Credit card offers
• Tax returns older than seven years

Sponsored by: 49th Ward Green Corps, Alderman Joe Moore's office, and Midway Document Destruction
