Reducing, reusing, and restoring are the goals for Rep Jim Durkin’s and Senator John Curran’s upcoming “Go Green” Event in Homer Glen on September 28, 2019.
“The goal is to offer families an opportunity to shred confidential documents, get rid of unused prescriptions, and donate usable items to local charitable organizations,” said Senator Curran.
The event will take place from 9am to noon on September 28 at Homer Jr. High School, 15711 South Bell Road in Homer Glen.
Services offered will include free document shredding (limit two bags per car), medication take back (no needles), as well as donations of gently used clothing, useable bicycles, housewares and more. No television sets or electronics of any kind will be accepted at this event.
“As we move into the fall season, 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 our Go Green event not only benefits the environment, but also helps those in need who could use repurposed appliances, electronics, bicycles and much more.”
