Free Shred & Recycle Event
July 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The highly anticipated 2023 Recycle & Shred Day Event, taking place on Saturday, July 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at 1677 Montgomery Road, Aurora, IL 60504. This annual event, sponsored in part by KCT Credit Union, aims to promote environmental responsibility and provide a valuable service to the community.
The Recycle & Shred Day Event offers electronics recycling, medication disposal, paper shredding, and a collection of cell phones, eyeglasses, and lightly used books. The collected cell phones will be donated to Mutual Ground to support their vital work.
The event is open to the public, rain or shine, and has garnered tremendous popularity over the years. Participants can safely dispose of old bills, bank statements, receipts, and other sensitive documents through the on-site paper shredding service. This helps protect against identity theft and ensures the responsible management of confidential information.
The event also provides an opportunity to responsibly recycle approved electronic items, including computer towers, microwave ovens, DVD players, VCRs, printers, fax machines, and video game consoles. However, please note that TVs or computer monitors will not be accepted.
Fox Metro will be on-site to collect both prescription and over-the-counter medications, ensuring their proper disposal and safeguarding the environment
