Free shred event on tap May 9 at Greene County Fairgrounds

CARMICHAELS, May 7 – State Rep. Pam Snyder and the Greene County Commissioners are teaming up to sponsor a free community shredding event on Saturday, May 9, for the safe disposal of unwanted, confidential documents.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Greene County Fairgrounds, 107 Fairgrounds Road, Waynesburg.

“It’s a convenient way to safely dispose of confidential documents and prevent fraud and identity theft,” Snyder said. “The event is free for county residents. Sorry, but we cannot accept documents from businesses.”

Common types of unwanted items that should be shredded include credit card statements, credit card applications, bank statements, canceled checks, income tax information, insurance records and retirement or pension fund information.

More information is available by calling Snyder’s office at 724-966-8953.
