Another great Shred Day

The beautiful weather and desire to safely destroy old documents brought more than 100 people out to shred their documents at Shred Day on Saturday. Many were cleaning out closets and attics and shredding papers going back to the 1960s! It made me think we ought to give out a prize for the person who brings the oldest document for shredding...

Many asked me what is done with the paper. In about 60 seconds, the massive shredder turns the documents safely into confetti. The bits of paper go to a paper mill that turns the bits of paper into pulp that can be turned into new paper. In 2008, Hawthorne saved more than 100 trees with our shredding program.
Our next Shred Day is August 1 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Bolingbrook branch and October 3 from 10 a.m. to nooon at the Naperville branch. See you there!
