Cavaletto tells Salem residents to bring out their shred-worthy documents
Rep. John Cavaletto (R-Salem) wants Salem residents to rid themselves of some sensitive documents and some worries at a paper shredding event on July 15.
Cavaletto, the Republican spokesman for the House Environment Committee, designed the shred event to assist residents who want to safely destroy medical records, financial statements or any documents containing their Social Security or bank account numbers.
Vehicles may bring two bags of documents to the shredding; people who want to observe their documents being shredded will be able to park in designated areas.
"A big thank you to AT&T for underwriting the cost of this shred truck again this year," Cavaletto said, according to his website. "This was popular last year for those who took advantage of the opportunity to destroy old documents with personal information on medical and financial paperwork.”
The event is for paper documents only and will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Kaskaskia College Salem Education Center.
