Paper Shredding, Electronics Recycling, Med Take-Back Event Coming June 15

 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Looking to get rid of unwanted, outdated prescription drugs?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 Highlanders Hall, 4808 S. Archer, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 15--where 14th Ward Alderman Edward M. Burke will host a paper shredding/drug take-back/electronics recycling event.

Papers to be shredded should be free of staples and binders.

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.

This event is also an electronics recycling event. Bring your unwanted electronics (but no TVs, please). Examples of electronics accepted are old cables, cellphones, computers, printers, DVDs, stereos and microwave ovens.

For details, call the alderman's office at (773) 471-1414.

Thanks to Alderman Burke for providing this useful public service.
