Yingling Announces his Annual Shred Day

09/10/2019
ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – Continuing his efforts to provide free services to the community he serves, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, will be holding a Community Shred Day with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) and the Village of Round Lake Park on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Round Lake Park Village Hall, located at 203 E. Lake Shore Drive in Round Lake Park.

“Shred days are one of my favorite events of the year,” said Yingling. “Providing free services to the community is something that is incredibly important to me, and I hope that everyone who needs to get rid of their documents takes advantage of this event.”

Yingling’s free shred day provides residents with the opportunity to safely dispose of their documents that contain personal information. Residents are encouraged to bring any documents that contain sensitive information, such as bank statements and medical bills, to the shred day. The documents will be shredded on-site, ensuring that all personal information is destroyed. The event will run until 1 p.m. or until the shred truck reaches capacity. Business shedding will not be accepted.

“Getting rid of your documents at my shred day is quick and easy,” said Yingling. “Preventing others from gathering your sensitive information can prevent many issues, and I am happy to provide a way for residents to avoid such situations.”
