HARRISBURG – Rep. Steve Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is hosting a free paper shredding and drug take-back event on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to noon at his district office, 1 Beaver Valley Road, Chadds Ford
. The office is located at the intersection of Route 202 and Naamans Creek Road.
“The event will offer residents the opportunity to safely get rid of items in their homes that put them at risk – both documents with personal information and unused medications,” Barrar said. “With proper disposal, residents will be less likely to suffer from identity theft and addiction.”
Residents of the 160th District will be able to shred up to three packing boxes of materials using the onsite industrial paper shredder. The boxes will be returned to residents. Only paper, not cardboard, will be accepted. Staples and paper clips need not be removed.
Also, prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and medicines can be dropped off for safe disposal. By law, needles and epi-pens will not be accepted.
Refreshments will be served. The event is free and will be held rain or shine. For more information, please call Barrar’s district office at (610) 358-5925.
