Rep. McClinton, Sen. Williams host annual shredding event

PHILADELPHIA, June 10 – State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, welcomed more than 100 constituents to her annual paper shredding event on Saturday to help them dispose of old documents containing personal information.

The event was held in the parking lot of Motivation High School and was co-hosted by state Sen. Anthony Williams.

“Disposing of old documents containing private information in regular trash or recycling makes many residents vulnerable to identity theft,” McClinton said. “I’m happy this year’s paper shredding event was a success with residents taking the opportunity to properly and safely dispose of their old documents.”

Residents’ documents were shredded on-site by Vital Records Control.

Constituents were able to shred unneeded documents containing information such as bank statements, credit card information and medical records.

Both lawmakers and their staff also assisted constituents with state government services and issues.
