Mullery to host free paper shredding event May 29

NANTICOKE, May 6 – State Rep. Gerald Mullery, D-Luzerne, will be holding a free paper shredding event to help residents safely dispose of their unwanted and personal documents.

The event will be held 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 29 at Greater Nanticoke High School, 425 Kosciuzsko St., Nanticoke.

“Shredding documents is a great way to protect personal information from getting into the hands of thieves and fraudsters,” Mullery said. "I'm pleased that my staff and I can again provide this public service as previous shredding events before the pandemic have been well attended."

Mullery said this will be a drive-thru shredding event. Residents are asked to place items in the back of their vehicles to be removed by a member or staff and then wait in their vehicles for the boxes or bags to be returned.

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

This event is only for residential documents. Business documents will not be accepted.

Documents will be shredded on site.

For more information, residents may call Mullery's Nanticoke office at 570-740-7031.
