HARRISBURG – Rep. Steve Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is hosting a free paper shredding and drug take-back event on Saturday, April 21, 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.
“Between many people finishing their taxes and beginning their spring cleaning, I encourage residents to gather sensitive financial documents that they no longer need so those items can be disposed of safely,” Barrar said. “Because of the industrial shredder, everyone can be confident that their information will be protected from misuse.”
Residents of the 160th District will be able to shred up to three packing boxes of materials using the on-site 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 the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office. 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.
