HARRISBURG-- Rep. Todd Stephens (R-Montgomery) will host a free Spring Cleaning Open House giving local residents the opportunity to recycle electronic equipment, safely destroy personal paperwork and donate old cell phones to a domestic violence shelter.

The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder, will take place on Saturday, April 5, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at Stephens’ district office located at 515 Stump Road in Montgomery Township.

“This is a pre-emptive strike to protect our residents, Stephens said. “Identity thieves have grown bolder in their search for credit card numbers, bank account information and Social Security numbers so it’s important to destroy documents containing this information.”

There is no limit on the number of electronics individuals can recycle or the amount of paper that can be shredded. Any electronic device with a battery or a plug will be accepted and attendees will be able to watch their documents as they are being destroyed.

“Even if someone doesn’t have any electronics to recycle or paper to shred, I encourage them to stop by my office, meet my staff, and learn what other services we can provide,” Stephens said. “It will also give residents a chance to ask me questions and learn what’s happening in Harrisburg.”

Light refreshments will be served.

For more information, please call Rep. Stephens’ office at 215-368-5165.
