Rep. Cavaletto Hosts FREE Shred Event June 18: Cost Underwritten by AT&T

State Representative John Cavaletto (R-Salem), announced today that residents who have paper documents with sensitive information that they want to have destroyed properly should take advantage of the free shred event scheduled for Saturday, June 18 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Kaskaskia College Salem Education Center parking lot.

“I want to thank AT&T for their generous contribution to underwrite the costs of bringing one of these shred trucks to our community,” commented Rep. Cavaletto. “This is an opportunity for people to both protect their sensitive information like social security numbers or bank account information from ‘identity thieves’ while also participating in recycling efforts to help the environment. It is a win-win program,” Cavaletto added.

The free event is open to residents—not companies—and there is a limit of two bags per car. Material will be accepted until the shred truck at the event reaches capacity. Residents are asked to remove all paper clips, staples and other bindings from their documents prior to bringing them to the event for shredding. Cardboard boxes cannot be left at the event.
