Crowe ShredEvent FlyerMARYVILLE – To ensure Metro East residents have a safe option for shredding documents containing personal information, State Senator Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) and State Rep. Katie Stuart (D-Edwardsville) are hosting an event in Edwardsville offering free, secure shredding services.

Shredding trucks will be available at Edwardsville High School, located at 6161 Center Grove Road, from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturday, April 24.

“The best way to protect yourself and your family from identity fraud is to securely destroy vulnerable documents,” Crowe said. “Take advantage of this free community event by utilizing shredding equipment to safely dispose of documents with personal information, which can protect you, your loved ones or your business against fraud.”

Examples of documents with personally identifiable information that should be safely discarded include bank statements, outdated medical records, tax returns, utility bills, junk mail, credit card applications and receipts.

"Many of us have old documents with personal information piling up at home, and this event is an opportunity for residents to safely and conveniently dispose of them,” said Stuart. “Shredding documents is an easy way to prevent identity theft as you’re getting rid of paperwork you no longer need.”

For more information, call Crowe’s office at 618-251-9840.
