Flynn hosting free shredding event April 27

SCRANTON, April 18 – State Rep. Marty Flynn, D-Lackawanna, will sponsor a free shredding event for residents in the 113th Legislative District from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at his district office in Jay’s Commons, 409 N. Main Ave. 

“As residents continue their spring cleaning, they may want to safely dispose of sensitive records and documents,” Flynn said. “My office is happy to again offer this free shredding event, which is an environmentally friendly way to protect your identity from fraud.”

Residents are encouraged to bring any documents that contain personal information, such as Social Security numbers, credit card statements and applications, medical records, banking statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance records and retirement or pension fund information. 

Flynn noted there is a limit of three boxes or trash bags per person and that the event is open only to residents in the 113th Legislative District. Papers with metal clips, metal binding and leather or plastic covers will not be accepted.  

Residents wanting more information can call Flynn’s office at 570-342-4348.
