9/24 Shredding Event & Mini Recycling Fair with Senator Scott Bennett

The Urbana Free Library and State Senator Scott Bennett are offering a Shredding Event to raise awareness of and to help prevent consumer fraud and identity theft.

Do you have old batteries or empty ink-jet cartridges?  You can also bring these for our Mini Recycling fair. The City of Urbana U-Cycle is partnering with the Library to recycle these items.

Consumer fraud and identity theft are becoming an epidemic in our communities. Experts recommend shredding things like bank statements, credit card offers, and credit card convenience checks. Residents should also shred canceled credit cards, canceled checks, pay stubs, and old photo IDs that are more than three years old.

Date & Time:
Saturday, September 24, 2016
9:00 a.m.-Noon*

* The shredding event will end at noon or earlier if the shredding truck reaches capacity.

Location:
Parking lot on Cedar and Elm, just west of The Urbana Free Library
Enter from Elm Street.

Shredding Limit:
Two boxes per person.
Residential shredding only (not for businesses)
Please plan to take empty boxes home with you.

Mini-Recycling Fair:
Cell phone and chargers
Single use batteries--regular, lithium or rechargeable
     Please tape end terminals of the lithium and rechargeable batteries for safety

Thanks! AT&T for providing the shredding truck and staff. A big thank you to Blake Weaver for sharing his parking lot and to the City of Urbana Public Works and U-Cycle!
