Join the 47th Ward office for a paper shredding and electronics recycling event from 10am to 1pm Saturday, October 8 in the Jewel parking lot at 4250 N Lincoln, located across the street from the ward office. Thank you to Jewel for providing space and Midway Moving and Storage for providing the shredding truck.
- PAPER SHREDDING. Please remove large staples, paper clips, binder clips, laminate covers, etc. Do not bring junk mail, glossy magazines or other paper that is not sensitive and does not require shredding. Please limit one banker's box if possible; we reserve the right to reject oversized items. No business items accepted. You must remain until your items are shredded in case there are items that can't be accepted.
- ELECTRONICS RECYCLING. Accepted items include computers, monitors, TVs, printers/scanners, keyboards and mice, VCRs, DVD players, video game consoles, portable music players, cable and satellite receivers and small-scale servers. Please note, this truck fills up quickly and is typically gone within 90 minutes. View more city electronics recycling drop-off locations here.
- PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKEBACK. Don't flush your expired or unused prescription medicine. The Cook County Sheriff's Office will be on hand to take back prescription medicine to safely dispose of it. Please note that they do not take sharps or liquid medicine. All collection is anonymous.
