McNeill’s free shredding and electronics recycling this Saturday

ALLENTOWN, Nov. 12 – State Rep. Jeanne McNeill, D-Lehigh, is reminding residents of Fountain Hill and Salisbury Township about a free shredding and electronics recycling event this Saturday, Nov. 16 where residents can dispose of personal paperwork and unwanted electronics.

“Improper disposal of personal documents gives thieves a chance to commit identity fraud,” McNeill said. “This event will make sure those papers are safely and securely destroyed, while also giving residents a chance to get rid of their old, unwanted electronics.”

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of Truman Elementary School, 1400 Gaskill St., Salisbury Township.

This event is limited to residents of the 133rd Legislative District. Residents are limited to 10 boxes of documents. Papers must be loose, with no binder clips or paperclips.

For electronics, there is no fee for items such as computers, monitors, DVD and video players, or gaming systems, but there is a fee for televisions. For TV’s under 40” it is $35, for models over 40”, projection, in wooden cabinets, tubes, or broken TVs, it is $55.

More information is available by calling McNeill's office at 610-266-1273.
