More than One Ton of Paper Recycled at Salem Shred Event!


Thank you to everyone who took the opportunity to dispose of sensitive documents on Saturday at our Shred Event. Over one ton (2,100 pounds) of paper was shred that contained health care information, bank account information and old tax documents with social security numbers. A big 'THANK YOU' also to AT&T for under-writing the cost of the shred truck, Kaskaskia College for the use of their Salem Center parking lot, the City of Salem for providing the safety cones and barricades, and to all of the volunteers who helped direct traffic and unload boxes and bags of old papers! This program not only helps deter identity theft but also helps in our community's efforts to recycle.
