DeLissio to host free shredding events Oct. 30, Nov. 14

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 21 – State Rep. Pam DeLissio will host free shredding events on Oct. 30 and Nov. 14 to help constituents safely dispose of unneeded documents.

“The safe disposal of documents that contain personal information is one of the best defenses against identity theft and scams,” said DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila. “I’m glad to host these events to help my constituents protect sensitive information.”

The events will be held as follows:

9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 30
Main Street Movie Theatre Parking Lot
3720 Main St., Manayunk

9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Sunday, Nov. 14
Welsh Valley Middle School
325 Tower Lane, Narberth

The events will end sooner than scheduled if the truck is full. Shredding is done on-site, and all shredded paper will be recycled. These events are rain or shine. There is a limit of four paper grocery bags or banker boxes per household. Newspapers, magazines and journals will not be accepted.

Common types of unwanted items for shredding include credit card statements or applications, bank and investment statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance and health records, and retirement or pension fund information.

Anyone with questions should call DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726.
