Krueger to host free shredding and prescription drug collection event Oct. 17

FOLSOM, Sept. 28 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger will host a free shredding and prescription drug collection event from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 17 at the Aston Community Center, 3270 Concord Road, Aston.

Residents of the 161st District are invited to bring up to five boxes of old papers that contain personal information to have them shredded on-site and recycled. In addition, the Delaware County District Attorney’s Mobile Drug Collection Unit will be on-site to collect any unneeded medications for proper disposal.

“Shredding personal documents helps protect against identity theft, and safe discarding of prescription drugs keeps them from falling into the wrong hands or being abused. I’m pleased to be able to host this event to help community members get rid of these items safely,” said Krueger, D-Delaware.

Those attending should wear a mask and put materials for shredding in the trunk of their vehicle, where someone will retrieve them.

Anyone with questions should contact Krueger’s office at 610-534-6880.
