Daley, others to host free shred event Nov. 14

LOWER MERION, Nov. 3 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, will host a free drive-thru document shredding event to help residents properly dispose of unneeded documents. 

The shred event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14 at Welsh Valley Middle School, 325 Tower Lane, Narberth. State Reps. Greg Vitali, D-Delaware/Montgomery, Tim Briggs, D-Montgomery, and Pamela DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Philadelphia, are joining Daley to co-host the event. 

“Shredding old documents and items containing sensitive information is a crucial step in identity protection,” said Daley. “Identity theft and credit and debit card fraud happen every day, and this event provides a secure way to be proactive in preventing these damaging crimes.” 

There is a limit of four boxes or bags per household, and no electronics will be accepted at this event. Attendees should stay in their vehicles and open their trunks while staff unload items to be shredded. All documents will be securely shredded on-site, and all paper is recycled. 

Items that are recommended to be shredded include bank statements, credit card statements and applications, canceled or voided checks, income tax information, insurance records, and retirement or pension information.
