HARRISBURG – Rep. Marcy Toepel (R-Montgomery) is hosting a free paper shredding event on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. to noon at the New Hanover Recreation Center, 2373 Hoffmansville Road in Frederick.

The event, which will feature an on-site industrial paper shredder from Wiggins Shredding, will provide the opportunity for households to shred up to four packing boxes of materials. Cardboard boxes and plastic bags will be returned; paper bags can be shredded along with the other material.

“This is a great opportunity for residents to get rid of large amounts of unwanted documents containing personal information that could be used to steal their identity or cause other harm,” said Toepel. “Residents will not even need to get out of their vehicle; simply pull up and we will take care of the rest.”

Due to COVID-19, attendees are asked to follow these guidelines:

• Event participants must stay in their vehicles.
• All shredding materials must be placed in the trunk or truck bed area of the vehicle, not the backseat, prior to arrival. Event staff will unload materials while residents remain in their vehicles.

The event will be held rain or shine. Any questions, please contact Toepel’s office at 610-323-3299 in Gilbertsville or 215-256-6030 in Harleysville.
