State Rep. Mark Rozzi is hosting a free shredding event this summer to help residents of the 126th Legislative District properly dispose of unneeded documents.
The shred event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 19 in the lot behind Rozzi’s district office, 4933 Kutztown Road, Temple.
“Protecting confidential information through shredding unnecessary, old documents is an important safeguard in the perpetual fight against identity theft. This event is a great opportunity to take a proactive approach in achieving the objective of not having your private information fall into the wrong hands,” Rozzi said.
There is a limit of five boxes for each household, and attendees are asked to open their trunks and please remain in their vehicle while Rep. Rozzi and his team unload your vehicle. Please bear in mind that newspapers, magazines and journals will not be accepted.
Rozzi said the event will be held rain or shine and may end sooner than scheduled if the truck is full. Shredding is done on-site, and all shredded paper will be recycled.
Common types of unwanted items for shredding include credit card statements or applications, bank and investment statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance and health records, and retirement or pension fund information.
Anyone with questions should call Rozzi’s office at 610-921-8921.
