While everyone knows that we should protect ourselves from cyber identity theft it’s easy to forget that the threat of “paper” identity theft is still very real. If you’ve got old documents around you’re going to want to mark your calendars for the North Clark Historical Museum Shred Day event on Saturday, April 17, 2021.
The Shred Truck from Waste Connections will be at the North Clark Historical Museum (21416 NE 399TH ST, Amboy) from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Assistance will be provided, and Social Distancing will be practiced. This is a free event, but donations are always welcome to help offset the cost of the shred truck.
Tickets will also be available to purchase for the 2021 Raffle Quilt, “Prairie Sampler” made by the Chelatchie Quilters. Tickets are $1.00 each. Quilt Raffle proceeds go to the Capital Improvement Fund.

Shredding those documents isn’t only good for your safety, it’s good for the environment.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), each recycled ton of paper fiber saves:
3.3 cubic yards of landfill space
360 gallons of water
100 gallons of gasoline
60 pounds of pollutants
10,400 kilowatts of electricity
So save your identity and the environment at the same time!
