DeLissio announces two spring shredding events

PHILADELPHIA, March 8 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will hold two free shredding events for constituents of the 194th Legislative District to safely dispose of confidential, unwanted documents.

The next two shred events are scheduled as follows:

  • Saturday, April 13, 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. in the parking lot behind Magisterial District Court, 925 Montgomery Ave., Narberth
  • Saturday, May 11, 9 a.m. - 11 a.m. in the Roxborough Municipal Lot, 514 Dupont St., Philadelphia.

The events will be held rain or shine. There is a limit of four bags per household (standard storage/banker boxes or grocery bags) and will conclude at 11 a.m. sharp.

"Safe disposal of documents with personal information is one of the best defenses against identity theft,” DeLissio said. "Shredding also is a great way to dispose of unneeded paper in an environmentally friendly way, and I am happy to offer this service to my constituents."

DeLissio said common types of unwanted items that should be shredded include credit card statements, credit card applications, bank and investment statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance and health records and retirement or pension fund information.

All shredding is done on site, and shredded paper will be recycled. Those who would like more information can call DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726.
