Willis to Host Community Recycling Extravaganza

NORTHLAKE, Ill. – In order to help area residents in their spring cleaning efforts to remove unwanted items from their homes, state Rep. Kathleen Willis (D-Addison) will be hosting a free Community Recycling Extravaganza on Saturday, April 23 from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. in the parking lot of her constituent services office, located at 112 N. Wolf Road in Northlake.

“I have spoken with many people in the area who are trying to dispose of their things in an environmentally responsible way,” Willis said. “I hope this event will provide them with a convenient way to take care of these items.”

There will be numerous organizations on site collecting items including batteries, electronics, prescription drugs, eye glasses, and various other recyclable items. In addition to the recycling available at the event, residents will be able to bring up to five boxes of paperwork to be shredded free of charge, to protect them from identity theft. Residents with questions about whether items are eligible to be recycled or about any other issues are encouraged to contact Rep. Willis’ constituent service office, either by phone at (708) 562-6970, or by e-mail at repwillis77@gmail.com.

“I hear from many people in our area concerned about identity theft,” said Willis. “Hopefully people can use this opportunity for free shredding to protect their personal information and gain some peace of mind.”

Kathleen Willis is serving her second term in the Illinois General Assembly as State Representative of the 77th District, which includes O’Hare Airport and portions of Addison, Bellwood, Bensenville, Franklin Park, Maywood, Melrose Park, Northlake, Stone Park, and Wood Dale.
