Paper Shredding Event

Winnetka’s Document Destruction Event will be held in August at the Public Works Yards at 1390 Willow Road. The goal of the program is to assist residents with recycling outdated or sensitive documents.

As a continuing program, the Solid Agency of Northern Cook Country (SWANCC) is providing a one-day document destruction event for residentially-generated paper, such as medical forms, bank statement, personal files, retired tax forms, etc. Paper clips and staples do not need to be removed, but please remove binders.

The next paper shredding event will be held on August 17, 2024, from 9 AM to 12 PM.


There is no cost to participate, but residents must live in one of SWANCC’s member communities (Winnetka is a SWANCC member community) and IDs will be checked for proof of residency. Residents will be limited to 6 file-size boxes or paper shopping bags per vehicle.
