HARRISBURG—Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) will host a free Community Shredding and Electronic Recycling Event to give local residents the opportunity to recycle electronic equipment and safely destroy personal paperwork and credit cards. Stephens is cohosting the event with Montgomery Township, but it is open to residents of his district including Horsham, Montgomery, Lower Gwynedd and Upper Dublin.
The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder, will take place on Saturday, April 7, from 9-11 a.m. at Stephens’ district office located at 515 Stump Road in Montgomery Township.
“Identity thieves aggressively search for credit card numbers, bank account information and Social Security numbers as a way to steal your ID,” Stephens said. “That’s why it’s so important to destroy documents containing this information. My event is a terrific opportunity to protect yourself from identity theft.”
There is no limit on the number of electronics individuals can recycle or the amount of paper that can be shredded. The Community Shredding and Electronic Event will be open to individuals only. Businesses will be unable to have their documents shredded at that time.
Televisions and computer monitors will be recycled for a flat rate of $30.
There are a few restrictions: no devices with Freon (like air conditioners and refrigerators) and no microwaves can be accepted.
For more information, please call Stephens’ office at 215-368-5165.
