Need to Shred? Bring Papers to Our Document Destruction Event

On Saturday, October 27, the Village of Barrington will host a Document Destruction Event at the North Commuter Lot from 9:00 a.m. – noon. (Enter at Klingenberg Lane and Northwest Highway.)  The event is sponsored by the Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC), and residents from Barrington and other SWANCC communities are eligible to participate. However, materials will not be accepted from non-SWANCC residents, businesses, schools, or institutions, and IDs will be checked for
verification of residency: www.swancc.org/swancc-member-communities. Acceptable documents can include medical forms, bank statements, personal files and retired tax forms. There is a limit of six file boxes or paper bags, and all plastic, metal clips or binders must be removed. DO NOT bring paper in plastic bags. Plastic is a contaminant,
as are photos, slides, and any non-paper items.

“Every consumer is at risk of identity theft, and criminals have gotten very astute at going into garbage cans and recycling bins to steal names, addresses and even bank account numbers,” said Mary Allen, SWANCC’s Recycling and Education Director. “Because of this constant threat, SWANCC wants to assist residents with destroying
their personal information, making sure that all shredding is done on site at the host location before being recycled.”
