Document Destruction and Electronic Recycling Events for 2019

April 3, 2019 01:52 PM

Need a place to shred those documents or get rid of electronic devices after spring cleaning? 

The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) has released a portion of its 2019 schedule for document destruction and electronic recycling events.  Residents who live Park Ridge (or in a SWANCC member community) and have documents to destroy, such as medical records, tax forms, bank statements, etc., or electronic devices for recycling, can bring them to any of the recycling events held May through October which are hosted by member communities.

Paper documents must be brought to the event in either paper shopping bags or boxes - NO PLASTIC BAGS - please! There is a limit of six paper shopping bags or file-size boxes per vehicle. Paper must be free of contamination, such as metal clips, plastic sleeves, folders, and binders .   Also, please have your ID ready, as staff will be checking each vehicle. Workers will remove paper from vehicles to place in carts. Then documents will then be loaded into the shredding truck. The paper will be cross-shredded, baled, and eventually recycled into new paper products.
