Durkin, Curran and Olsen to Host Free Recycling Event in Burr Ridge

House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Western Springs), State Sen. John F. Curran (R-Downers Grove) and State Rep. David S. Olsen (R-Downers Grove) are hosting a free recycling and paper shredding event for all area residents. 

During the event, which will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 9:00 AM until 12:00 noon at Burr Ridge Middle School, 15W451 91st Street in Burr Ridge, people will have an opportunity to drop off up to two bags of documents to be shredded, donate food, clothes and household items, and drop off electronics and other items for recycling.

"With spring weather just around the corner, this event is a great opportunity for community members to clear out unwanted clutter and items that unnecessarily take up space in their homes," Durkin said. "Appropriately disposing these items through recycling not only benefits the environment, but also helps those in need who could use repurposed appliances, electronics, bicycles and much more."

“The event is a free opportunity to either dispose of unwanted items or donate them to help those less fortunate in our district,” said Curran. “Our participating local organizations will be with us collecting electronics, household items, sealed foods, and new and used clothing. Residents can also take advantage of the shredding service we’re offering. It’s an easy and free way to properly destroy your sensitive documents and better protect you and your family from fraud or identity theft.”

"It's a pleasure to partner with Leader Durkin and Senator Curran for this recycling and document shredding event," said Olsen. "With the help of our assisting participants, we are offering residents an opportunity to safely and efficiently dispose of all kinds of household items."

Televisions and computer monitors will not be accepted. Click here to view the full list of items that will be accepted at the event. For additional information, please contact Rep. Olsen’s office at (630) 737-0504.
