Krueger, Kane invite residents to October shredding event

FOLSOM, Oct. 7 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger, D-Delaware, and state Sen. John Kane, D-Delaware/Chester, will host a free shredding and drug take back event from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, October 15.

The event will take place in the parking lot at Northley Middle School, 2801 Concord Road, Aston. Attendees should enter from Concord Road.

Residents may bring up to four boxes of documents. In addition, the Delaware County District Attorney’s Mobile Drug Collection Unit will be on-site collecting unneeded medications for proper disposal.

Electronics will not be accepted at this event.

“I am proud to host events like this one for residents and I’m happy Senator Kane can join us once again,” said Krueger. “It is important to have a safe and easy way to dispose of confidential information and unneeded medication. Shredding old paper can help prevent identity theft and proper disposal of old medication can prevent it from falling into the wrong hands!”

Kane said, “Shredding events are one of the best ways to ensure your confidential and sensitive documents are disposed of without the risk of being used without your knowing. We’ve also seen unused and forgotten-about medications brought to our takeback events to protect the lives of those facing opioid addiction and to prevent the misuse of prescriptions. I am glad to join Representative Krueger in combining these two essential collections to help make our community safer.”

The event is open to all residents of the 161st Legislative District, but please no businesses.
