DeLissio to offer FREE document shredding event April 28

PHILADELPHIA, April 19 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio will hold a free shredding event for constituents to safely dispose of confidential, unwanted documents.

It will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 28 in the Roxborough Municipal Lot at 514 Dupont St. 

Availability is on a first-come basis. Shredding will take place at the designated time or until the truck is full. The event will be held rain or shine. There is a limit of four bags per household (standard storage/banker boxes or grocery bags).

"Safe disposal of documents with personal information is one of the best defenses against identity theft,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. "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 statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance records and retirement or pension fund information.

Shredding will be done on site and all shredded paper will be recycled. For more information, constituents can call DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726.
