The Urbana Free Library and State Senator Scott Bennett are offering a paper shredding event for Urbana-Champaign residents to raise awareness of and help prevent consumer fraud and identity theft. Shred your out-of-date personal documents. 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. Have you stockpiled old batteries or empty ink-jet cartridges? You can bring these and the other items listed below for our Mini Recycling Fair, going on at the same time as the shredding. Shredding Limit Two boxes per person. Residential shredding only (not for businesses) Please plan to take empty boxes home with you.
