Some businesses with free shredding services in Chicago include Midway and Staples. There is also a community shredding event every year in Chicago that provides free shredding.
The community event occurs in September, which is done to promote recycling. It is administered by the local chamber of commerce and offers people free shredding for up to three boxes or bags. Additional boxes of paper to be shredded cost about $5 a box. The Midway moving company also provides shredding events called Shred-A-Thons. These events offer free shredding to the public.
To get free shredding at a local Chicago Staples store, visit Staples.com and go to the Coupons page. Select the free shredding coupon for up to five pounds of paper to be shredded for free.
