Do you have boxes of papers you want to get rid of, but don't want to
just recycle them because of the personal information they contain?
Shredding them is the way to be sure your information is destroyed and not shared.
The following announcement about a free shredding event Saturday was posted on Rep. Tom Murt's website:
HARRISBURG-- Rep. Tom Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia) will host a free
paper shredding event to give local residents the opportunity to safely
destroy personal paperwork.
The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder, will
take place on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9-11 a.m., in the parking lot of
St. Albert the Great Parish, 212 Welsh Road in Huntington Valley.
“Identity theft is a growing problem that requires us to become more
proactive in protecting ourselves,” Murt said. “These thieves are brazen
in their search for credit card numbers, bank account information and
Social Security numbers. This is an important pre-emptive strike.”
Individuals are limited to four file boxes of paper. A truck from
Wiggins Shredding will provide the shredding services. This event is for
paper shredding only. Individuals will have the opportunity to watch
their paper being shredded on-site.
For more information, please contact Rep. Murt’s office at 215-674-3755.
