Worth Township offers a shredding and electronics recycling event this Saturday, May 17, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the township, 11601 S. Pulaski Road.
People are encouraged to bring in their unnecessary and sensitive documents along with out-dated electronics. Shredding papers with sensitive information such as social security and credit card numbers is a good way to prevent identity theft. Electronic waste (e-waste) consists of computers, televisions, monitors, laptops, cell phones, DVD players, etc.
Worth Township is at 11601 S. Pulaski in Alsip. The event is sponsored by state Rep. Kelly Burke (D).
