Ald. Tabares Hosting Paper Shredding, Med Take-Back Event at Byrne School

Looking to get rid of unwanted yet sensitive documents (like old

utility bills, medical records, tax returns, Social Security/pension statements, etc.)?

Looking to get rid of unwanted, outdated prescription drugs?

Then make plans to head over to Byrne School, 54th and Oak Park, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday, May 1--where 23rd Ward Alderman Silvana Tabares will host a shred/drug take-back event.

This is a contact-free event. Motorists dropping off papers or prescription meds are asked to wear masks and stay in their vehicles. Volunteers will remove papers and/or outdated/unwanted meds.

The prescription drug take-back is sponsored by the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

Meds should be in their original containers or a sealed plastic bag. Not accepted are liquid meds, anything in an aerosol container, medical waste (including used gloves, masks, syringes, needles, lancets, tubing, IV bags) and illegal drugs.

Volunteers will not accept any electronics at this event.

For details, call the alderman's office at (773) 582-4444.

Thanks to Alderman Tabares for providing this useful public service!
