PHILADELPHIA, March 17 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio is holding two free shredding events in April for constituents to safely dispose of confidential, unwanted documents.
The events are:
- 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 9 at the Roxborough Municipal Lot, at 514 Dupont St. Philadelphia.
- 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 16 at the Old “Anne Sez” parking lot next to Staples, 925 Montgomery Ave., Narberth.
Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Shredding will take place until 11 a.m. or until the truck is full.
“Safe disposal of documents with personal information is one of the best defenses against identity theft,” DeLissio said. “Shredding also is a great way to dispose of unneeded paper in an environmentally friendly way, and I am happy to offer this service to my constituents.”
DeLissio said common types of unwanted items that should be shredded include credit card statements, credit card applications, bank statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance records and retirement or pension fund information.
According to DeLissio, all shredding will be done on site and all shredded paper will be recycled. Constituents are asked to hold to the four-box or four-bag limit per household (standard storage/banker boxes or grocery bags).
To obtain more information, constituents can call DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726 or email RepDeLissio@pahouse.net.
