Springfield Hosts Shredding Event


Springfield, IL –  Local First Springfield is bringing back its annual Shred Event back to downtown Springfield on Saturday April, 20, 2013. 

"Because more than any other day of the year, it can be both environmentally responsible and incredibly therapeutic to shred a few boxes of records  on that first Saturday after Tax Day ," said Local First Springfield Executive Director Bill McMahon. "This is definitely one of our most popular events, and has grown to the point where we can offer more than just paper recycling. "

For donating a case of non-perishable canned goods to the Salvation Army Food Pantry, Local First will shred up to five (5) boxes of records. Recycling cardboard, non-controlled prescription drugs in their original bottles and almost-anything-that-plugs-in electronics.

Event time, place and location information is as follows:

Time: 10:00 AM - Noon

Cost:  Donation of one case of case of non-perishable canned goods for the Salvation Army Food Pantry (cash donations also accepted)
