FREE Document Shredding in Chicago Area

State Rep. Julianna Stratton (D-Chicago) is hosting a free document shred day from 9 a.m. to noon on Aug. 19 at St. Edmund’s Village Apartments, 6253 S. Michigan Ave in Woodlawn MAP

It’s a chance for people to securely get rid of documents that could be used for nefarious purposes if the wrong person found them.

“We all have old credit card statements, bank statements, medical records, bills or other confidential information that we no longer need,” Stratton said. “Shredding these documents is a simple way to protect against identity theft, clean out the house and help the environment by keeping unnecessary waste out of our landfills.”


Stratton’s Community Shred Day will feature a large, mobile document shredder where area residents can destroy confidential papers on-site in a secure and environmentally-friendly way, free of charge. Residents are asked not to leave cardboard boxes at the event, as they cannot be shredded. There is a two bag limit per car. Attendees will be assisted on a first-come, first-served basis.


“Providing free services like “shred day” to the community is one of the many ways that I strive to connect local residents with valuable resources,” Stratton continued. “I hope that residents will take advantage of this opportunity.”
