Shred Day in Crest Hill & Tinley Park
We are having a Free Shred Day on Saturday, October 21st at our Crest Hill and Tinley Park locations. Bring up to two paper boxes of your old personal information to shred at our Crest Hill office from 9:00am to 10:30am or at our Tinley Park office from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Destroying your old personal information is a great way to prevent identity theft. This is a free event open to the community!
