Citywide Shredding Events

From March through November, Shredding events are scheduled across the City to provide a convenient way to shred and recycle sensitive documents. 

Take documents for shredding or shredded paper for recycling.

Paper shredded during the events is recycled, and they'll take your previously shredded paper for recycling too. 

Reminder, shredded paper is not accepted in the blue cart.

A big thank you to Midway Moving Co for providing the shredding services, and for maintaining this extensive public calendar. 



In partnership with

City of Chicago
