Document Shredding
Document shredding will be offered to residents at no cost at the commuter lot at Parkside & Main. It is highly recommended to arrive after 10AM to avoid the initial queue. This event is possible thanks to DuPage County and it will coincide with the Village’s regular monthly electronics collection. Contact Lombard Public Works at (630) 620-5740 or publicworks@villageoflombard.org for more information. Additional paper shredding events are occasionally announced at http://www.dupageco.org/EDP/Waste_Recycling_and_Energy/1551/
